Site guide: License
The content of this website is, generally speaking and with the specified exceptions, released under the Creative Commons Attribution - Non-commercial - Sharealike license. If you never heard about that, Creative Commons is a project that aims to create standard license conditions for Internet content, built on the concept of sharing. Through Creative Commons licenses, the author reserves for himself only some of the rights that laws attribute to him, giving up on a part of his copyright. Thus, you (the visitor) are allowed to use my contents more freely if compared, for example, to a commercial website or to a traditional, printed book.
Anyway, the specific license that I adopted puts some conditions on you: thus you should better read the deed (here you can find the complete legal text of the license that I am awarding you - it is unfortunately in Italian, as this website falls under Italian law). Exceptions are always possible if specifically agreed, so if you need a special license, just contact me.
In any case, there are some special conditions on some specific parts of the site - this is usually shown by a change in the license conditions stated in the footer of the pages. For example, my Italian Internet user's guide has its own, more restrictive license since 2000, and for the time being I decided to keep it. The software I wrote, moreover, is released (unless differently specified in the download page) under the GNU General Public License version 2 - please note, version 2 and not the following ones.
Moreover, this website sometimes hosts content written or made by others - for example inside the FAQ Archive, even if not updated any more, or the ancient software archive - in these cases, of course the license conditions and rights stated by each author of the individual object apply.
