Here's the licensing requirements for LDP documents (from the LDP
manifesto). What Greg Ferguson posted omitted the first paragraph.
5. LICENSE REQUIREMENTS
Anyone may copy and distribute (sell or give away) LDP documents (or
other LDP works) in any media and/or format. No fees are required to
be paid to the authors. It is not required that the documents be
modifiable, but it is encouraged.
You can come up with your own license terms that satisfy these
conditions, or you can use a previously prepared license. The LDP has
a boilerplate license that you can use if you wish. Some people like
to use the GPL, while others write their own. There is a project
underway to create a special GPL license just for documents and this
may turn out to be a good choice.
