52Free and non-free pattern file folders created
- Dec 1, 2004A little off-topic, but I have created Free and Non-Free pattern
file folders in the Files section. Please feel free to upload any
pattern files you wish to share freely with other knitters.
Free patterns are those which are either in the public domain, or
under copyright but with an explicit license to
redistribute/modify/use commercially. For such a work, you may wish
to consider releasing under the following license:
You can customize a license at creativecommons.org By releasing
under a clear understandable Creative Commons license, you make
explicit the terms under which you are sharing your work.
The Non-Free pattern folder can be used for patterns which are
distributed under a restrictive license, such as no-redistribution
allowed, non-commercial only, or no derivative works allowed, etc.
I hope we can build up the "Free" section with a collection of
patterns anyone can use as-is or modify for any use. But both Free
and Non-Free patterns are welcomed.
Non-Free doesn't mean infringing on someone's copyright, by the way.
It just means there are significant restrictions on use or
