Licence Details

Attribution-Share Alike (BY-SA)

This licence lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, 
as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. 
This licence is often compared to open source software licences. 
All new works based on yours will carry the same licence; 
so any derivatives will also allow commercial use.
