TERMS AND CONDITIONS

OUR VIETNAM supports “Copyleft”, which is the opposite term for “Copyright”. If Copyright promotes copyright, Copyleft promotes sharing. Copyleft is the practice of granting the right to freely distribute and modify intellectual property with the requirement that the same rights be preserved in derivative works created from that property.

It means that when you use any shared intellectual property free of charge under Copyleft, it is your responsibility and obligation to continue sharing it, not as an asset. Common practice is to use Copyleft to codify the copyrights for a work, including the freedom to use the work, to study the work, to copy and share the work with others, to modify the work and distribute modified versions of that work.

The Copyleft icon is   , in contrast to the   Copyright symbol.

Copyleft   supports knowledge sharing, creating world-wide equality.
