Cyclopath Geowiki Platform Copyright (c) 2006-2013 Regents of the University of Minnesota. * For licensing terms, see the file LICENSE. Contact email@example.com with questions and comments. == License == This software is open source software under the Apache License 2.0, with one additional clause. This clause requires you to obtain our permission before using this software in any system with more than 100 users, and it has a sunset date. We are eager to give this permission, and we very much want more geowikis out there running the Cyclopath software! Generally, we will ask for research access, to study the use of your system, in exchange. Do contact us at the e-mail address above if you are interested. We realize that this clause means that the Cyclopath Geowiki Platform fails the Debian Free Software Guidelines until it expires. We added it in order to make the code available as soon as possible while still leaving a window to avoid competition and to build research relationships. See the file LICENSE. A few files and directories have slightly different (but compatible) licenses. This is noted in the relevant files and directories. == Additional Requests == While the following requests are non-binding, we believe they constitute good citizenship and would very much appreciate if you abide by them. * Research access: Cyclopath was created as a research system and has enabled many interesting scientific discoveries in the areas of collaborative systems, online communities, geographic systems, human-computer interaction, and wikis. Further, the funding streams that core Cyclopath Geowiki Platform development depends on are research-based. Thus, our ability to study the use of Cyclopath-based systems is very important, and we would greatly appreciate access to your logs, permission to occasionally send invitations to participate in research studies to your users, and other research access. If you bring up a geowiki based on this software, please contact us at the above e-mail address to discuss research possibilities. * Giving back: While we do not require you to do so, we do consider it unethical to use this free software without giving back to the community in some way, particularly if you modify the software. The standard way to do this is to participate in the community surrounding the software and to contribute your modifications back to the community, but we realize some organizations are unable to do this. In this case, financial contributions or other support are appropriate. * For scientists and researchers: If this software benefits your work in a substantive way, it is your professional obligation to acknowledge this contribution. A brief mention of thanks in your paper's Acknowledgements section, explaining how the software benefitted you, or some other similar credit, is sufficient. Please also send us a note letting us know of your work, as this is very beneficial in obtaining funding, tenure, etc., not to mention the possibility that your research may be very interesting to us! == Naming == You may not use this software in any system or product called Cyclopath, Cyclopath Geowiki Platform, or any variation (in fact, you may not create such a thing even if you use other software), and you may not use terms such as Cyclopath, GroupLens Research, and University of Minnesota to imply that your system or product is endorsed or created by us. However, you may -- and we encourage you to! -- use phrasing like "based on the Cyclopath Geowiki Platform", "powered by Cyclopath", "based on Cyclopath Geowiki Platform technology", etc. This is essentially identical to how you may use the term Apache; see <http://www.apache.org/foundation/licence-FAQ.html#Name-changes>.
