Note: All Linux Documentation Project manuals are copyrighted by their respective authors. THEY ARE NOT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

The Linux Documentation Project manuals (guides) may be reproduced and distributed in whole or in part, subject to the following conditions:

Exceptions to these rules may be granted for academic purposes: write to the author and ask. These restrictions are here to protect us as authors, not to restrict you as educators and learners. All source code in Linux Installation and Getting Started is placed under the GNU General Public License, available via anonymous FTP from the GNU archive site.

Please read the LDP Manifesto for further information. If you are authoring a work, the Manifesto provides a sample copyright (derived from the previous area) to utilize, if you so desire. There is also a section devoted to Publishing LDP Manuals. If you're a publishing company interested in distributing any of the LDP manuals, please read that particular section.
