We noticed that every now and then, someone mentions one of our posts, reuses information, or translates an item for a local community site. We love when someone out there feels that our content or information is helpful to their testing concerns. To encourage this, we decided to relicense most of our whitepapers, blog posts, and Articles under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license (unless stated otherwise).
What does it mean? This license gives you a couple of freedoms:
You are free to share, copy, distribute and transmit the work
You are free to translate our material into your native language
There are of course a couple of conditions, to make sure everybody plays fair:
You must attribute the work to us, by adding ‘Originally written by [AUTHOR] at [LINK TO ORIGINAL POST]
You can’t use our work for commercial purposes
Whatever you do, your resulting post, link, paper, etc must be licensed under the same license
You can read the full license or the short version at the Creative Commons site.
If you adapt, reuse or translate one of our posts, we’d love to hear about it! Just post a link in our blog, or send us an email – and we’ll reciprocate links, which is good for everyone. Not only will this help us to know what’s happening with our posts, it will also point people who are interested to your site.
