Selecting a License
LDbase does not require licensing on all products. However, including a license clearly communicates the types of permissions a potential user has when accessing and using a product (such as a dataset or document).
For data, we recommend Open Data Commons Attribution License (ODC-by), which allows others to use, modify, and share your data but must cite your data when doing so (i.e., if someone uses your data for an analysis in a publication, they must cite your data).
Other Product Types
For other products, such as accompanying documentation to a dataset, we recommend you examine the Creative Commons Licenses to choose which is most appropriate for you. For a great summary of what they all mean, check out https://foter.com/blog/how-to-attribute-creative-commons-photos/.
