Working with libre knowledge and enabling people to exercise their freedom to learn and participate.

Pro-choice[1] licences are libre licences which permit users to create (or mix them into) non-libre derivatives (e.g. CC BY).


The site shares knowledge and cultural works under various licences, some libre, some non-libre.

  • - Free Software and Free Knowledge for a Free Society (Projects are released under their respective licenses; Except where otherwise noted, the rest is CC BY-SA).


Libre by name but sharing non-libre knowledge

  • - although the knowledge concerns libre software, the knowledge shared is non-libre (CC BY-NC-SA).


The following lists mostly include libre resources (not checked in detail):


  • Hipatia - "promote freedom of (and free sharing of) knowledge, as is the right of all human beings to access, use, create, modify and distribute knowledge freely and openly; ..."
  • Free software community
