Licensing

Unless expressly mentioned otherwise (as in in Discussions and Talk), all the the text on all Icy Wiki wikis is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0) license. You can read all about the license and what it entails on the Creative Commons link above.

CC BY-NC 4.0

In short, content licensed under this license gives the right to anyone to copy and redistribute the material in any medium of their choosing, to adapt or modify it, but only for non-commercial purposes, provided that attribution is given to the original creator, and that the same freedoms of the CC BY-NC 4.0 license are applied to the derivative works.

This explanation is not a substitute for reading the full text of the license, which you can find here.

Discussions and Talk

All the content on Discussion/Talk pages (including User Talk pages and the messages created/left there) are not licensed under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license. As described on our Terms of Use page, you grant Vedatis SAS a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, unrestricted, worldwide license to reproduce, prepare derivative works, distribute copies, perform, or publicly display such submitted content, in any medium and for any purpose, including commercial purposes. You agree that you have the right to submit any content you post, and that such content does not violate the copyright, trademark, trade secret or any other personal or proprietary right of any other party.

Importing Text

Any contributions you make for which you do not own or control the copyright may only be made if you have received these contributions under terms that are compatible with the CC BY-NC 4.0 license used by Icy Wiki wikis.

If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must credit the author(s) of the text in a reasonable manner.

Non-Text Contributions

Any non-text content you upload to Icy Wiki (most frequently, but not limited to, images) is not, by default, under the same licensing as the text (that is to say, CC BY-NC 4.0); instead, each non-text item will have its own licensing information which is visible when checking the details of said item.

With that said, any non-text contribution you make should fall under one of the following situations:

Note that simply being the creator of something does not necessarily mean you hold the copyright to that item. Note also that uploading an image from a game (even if the image was screenshotted by you) does not give you copyright over that image, which instead belongs (most likely) to the game publisher.
