without a Licence is not free! Your code is only useful, if other developers know that they can safely use it, without risking lawsuits.

If you are on , please check that your content is licenced under an OSI / FSF approved licence.

Thank you for caring about .

@codeberg if I were a developer in need of a license for my code, how would I find out which of those licenses is the best one for my project?

That's a tough question, we are going to add an article to the docs or our blog.
Most well-known and widely used licences are safe, for example copylefted ones like GPL, LGPL, also MIT (X11 & Expat), 3-clause BSD, usually the CreativeCommons licences ... but beware, not all are compatible with OSI / FSF and thus allowed on Codeberg, because they may not allow FreeCulture.
We know it's complicated, thus people started using Unlicence, WTFPL etc, but these may introduce legal trouble ...


@technicallypossible Until we have a guide on Codeberg, check out choosealicense.com/ - it contains really useful information.
