+&lt;h2&gt;Applying Copyleft To Non-Software Information&lt;/h2&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;by &lt;a href="http://dsl.org/"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Michael 
+&lt;h3 id="what"&gt;First, what is Copyleft?&lt;/h3&gt;
+The entry for
+&ldquo;&lt;a href="/copyleft/copyleft.html"&gt;copyleft&lt;/a&gt;&rdquo; in the
+definitive hacker lexicon, the
+&lt;a href="http://www.jargon.net/jargonfile/c/copyleft.html"&gt;Jargon
+File&lt;/a&gt;, reads:&lt;/p&gt;
+   copyleft: /kop'ee-left/ [play on &lsquo;copyright&rsquo;] n. 1. The
+   copyright notice (&lsquo;General Public License&rsquo;) carried by
+   GNU EMACS and other Free Software Foundation software, granting
+   reuse and reproduction rights to all comers (but see also General
+   Public Virus).  2. By extension, any copyright notice intended to
+   achieve similar aims.
+&lt;p&gt;The idea of &lt;a href="/copyleft/copyleft.html"&gt;copyleft&lt;/a&gt;
+originated with &uuml;ber-hacker &lt;a href="http://www.stallman.org/"&gt;
+Richard Stallman&lt;/a&gt; in 1983 when he started
+the &lt;a href="/gnu/gnu-history.html"&gt;GNU Project&lt;/a&gt;. In brief, his
+goal was &ldquo;to develop a complete free Unix-like operating
+system.&rdquo; As part of that goal, he invented and wrote
+the &lt;a href="/copyleft/gpl.html"&gt;GNU General Public License&lt;/a&gt;, a
+legal construct that included a copyright notice but added to it (or,
+technically, removed certain restrictions), so its terms allowed for
+the freedoms of reuse, modification and reproduction of a work or its
+derivatives to be kept for all.&lt;/p&gt;
+Normal &lt;a <span 
+copyright&lt;/a&gt; asserts ownership and identification of the author, as
+well as prevents the use of the author's name as author of a distorted
+version of the work; it also prevents intentional distortion of the
+work by others and prevents destruction of the work. But it also
+carries other restrictions &mdash; such as restricting the
+reproduction or modification of a work.&lt;/p&gt;
+Copyleft contains the normal copyright statement, asserting ownership
+and identification of the author. However, it then &lt;em&gt;gives 
+some of the other rights implicit in the normal copyright: it says
+that not only are you free to redistribute this work, but you are also
+free to change the work. However, you cannot claim to have written the
+original work, nor can you claim that these changes were created by
+someone else. Finally, all derivative works must also be placed under
+these terms.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;h3 id="why"&gt;Why is Copyleft important, or even necessary?&lt;/h3&gt;
+Certain restrictions of copyright &mdash; such as distribution and
+modification &mdash; are not very useful to &ldquo;cyberia,&rdquo; the
+&ldquo;free, apolitical, democratic community&rdquo; that constitutes
+the internetworked digital world.&lt;/p&gt;
+With computers, perfect copies of a digital work can easily be made
+&mdash; and even modified, or further distributed &mdash; by others,
+with no loss of the original work. As individuals interact in cyberia,
+sharing information &mdash; then reacting and building upon it &mdash;
+is not only natural, but this is the &lt;em&gt;only&lt;/em&gt; way for 
+beings to thrive in a community. In essence, the idea of copyleft is
+basic to the natural propagation of digital information among humans
+in a society. This is why the regular notion of copyright does not
+make sense in the context of cyberia.&lt;/p&gt;
+Simple &lsquo;public domain&rsquo; publication will not work, because
+some will try to abuse this for profit by depriving others of freedom;
+as long as we live in a world with a legal system where legal
+abstractions such as copyright are necessary, as responsible artists
+or scientists we will need the formal legal abstractions of copyleft
+that ensure our freedom and the freedom of others.&lt;/p&gt;
+Much literature has been written on this subject by Stallman, and the
+details can be found in the
+excellent &lt;a href="/philosophy/philosophy.html"&gt;texts&lt;/a&gt; published
+by the Free Software Foundation.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;h3 id="gpl"&gt;So why isn't the FSF's GNU GPL good enough?&lt;/h3&gt;
+It &lt;em&gt;is&lt;/em&gt; good enough! The GNU GPL is not only a document of
+significant historical and literary value, but it is in wide use today
+for countless software programs &mdash; those as formal part of the
+GNU Project and otherwise. The GNU GPL originated for the specific
+goal of sharing software among computer programmers. However, looking
+closely at the GPL, it appears that the same License can be easily
+applied to non-software information.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Alternately, a document can be copylefted under different, or much
+simpler terms; whether or not the GNU GPL is the specific means to the
+end is not the issue, although the GNU GPL certainly provides the most
+explicit (and canonical) definition of copyleft.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;h3 id="how"&gt;Ok, so how do I copyleft my non-software work?&lt;/h3&gt;
+It's simple. While a particular situation may require or inspire its
+own specific License, possibly similar to the GNU GPL, all that a
+copyleft notice must really do is fulfill the points as defined above
+in &ldquo;&lt;a href="#what"&gt;First, what is Copyleft?&lt;/a&gt;&rdquo;. 
+the GNU GPL to copyleft your work is easy.&lt;/p&gt;
+The GNU GPL states that it &ldquo;applies to any program or other work
+which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may
+be distributed under the terms of this General Public License,&rdquo;
+so this &ldquo;Program,&rdquo; then, may not necessarily be a computer
+software program &mdash; any work of any nature that can be
+copyrighted can be copylefted with the GNU GPL.&lt;/p&gt;
+The GNU GPL references the &ldquo;source code&rdquo; of a work; this
+&ldquo;source code&rdquo; will mean different things for different
+kinds of information, but the definition of &ldquo;source code&rdquo;
+&mdash; provided in the GNU GPL &mdash; holds true in any case:
+&ldquo;The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work
+for making modifications to it.&rdquo;&lt;/p&gt;
+The notices attached to the work can not always be attached &ldquo;to
+the start of each source file,&rdquo; as recommended by the GNU
+GPL. In this case, the directory that the files reside should contain
+a notice, as should any accompanying documentation or literature.&lt;/p&gt;
+Finally, for non-software works the &ldquo;copyright&rdquo; line
+included at the start of the &ldquo;source code&rdquo; of the work is
+modified in language slightly:&lt;/p&gt;
+    &lt;one line to give the work's name and a brief idea of what it does.&gt;
