All work submitted to this Wiki is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license (CC-BY-SA) and, unless otherwise specified, the GNU Free Documentation License. The copyright of work submitted to this Wiki remains with the copyright holder - which, if you wrote it, will be you. Submitting your work does not restrict what you can do with it; it just permits us to do certain things with it as well.

By submitting your work, you grant permission to distribute it under the terms of the CC-BY-SA and the GFDL, and you accept that others may modify and distribute your work under the same terms. That means they may change what articles say, and make copies of our articles on other sites, as long as they license such copies under the CC-BY-SA and/or GFDL.

Note that you cannot retract this license. You can, of course, edit an article to alter or remove your work if you do not want it there anymore, but you cannot stop someone reinstating it. Please think carefully about whether you want to write something on the wiki before you do so.

Submitting the work of others[edit]

You may submit the work of others if they say it is in the public domain, or freely licensed under the CC-BY-SA, or a compatible license (the GFDL alone is not a compatible license). Just copying from a website with no indication that the work is under such a license is not acceptable; such work is liable to removal. This applies to written works, visual art and all other forms of creative expression.

You must comply with any attribution requirements for the original work. If you submit work that is under the CC-BY-SA but not the GFDL, please note this in the page footer, edit summary or on the talk page.

Corporate artwork[edit]

There is one exception to the above - artwork from Cyberlife/Creatures Labs/Gameware. Permission to use such images from them on fan sites has been granted by the company. However, that does not mean that they can be taken from here and used on non-fan sites. Gameware Development, Creature Labs, CyberLife, Creatures, Creatures Adventures and Creatures Playground are registered trademarks of Gameware Development Ltd.. The Gameware Development, Creatures, Creatures 2, Creatures 3, Creatures Adventures, Creatures Playground, and Docking Station logos are trademarks of Gameware Development Ltd. in the United Kingdom and other countries.
