What you can do with this content[edit]

In general, you can copy any text on the website, and use it for any purpose, so long as you give credit to this wiki (or the individual who originally wrote the text) and your text uses a CC-BY-SA license. The Creative Commons website has more details on what you can and can't do.

Images might or might not be available for use; see each image's page for information.

What can I add to this wiki?[edit]

Anything you write, of course. You can also add any content that has the same license, CC-BY-SA, or a compatible license:

  • Public Domain
  • CC-Zero
  • CC-By
  • CC-By-SA
  • GNU Free Documentation License 1.3 (sometimes, see here for details)
  • Excepts of works under fair dealing (called "fair use" in the USA; see below for details)

This includes Wikipedia pages, though we encourage coming up with content rather than just blindly copying from other sources. Make sure you remember the "By" part of the license -- always attribute your source, in the page text or in the edit comment.

Quotes from copyrighted works can be used under the under the Canadian copyright law's "fair dealing" clauses, so long as they're not trying to reproduce some huge chunk of the original work. Just don't quote a whole scene or something, or what we'd "have here is failure to communicate." See Wikipedia's fair use page for more details on how the law works, if you need to know.

What images can I add to the Poser and Daz Free Resources Wiki?[edit]

We have "no nudity" and "no sexualization of a minor" requirements because of anti-obscenity laws in force in Ontario, Canada. In that jurisdiction, "minor" is defined as anyone under the age of 18, so figures that are intended to be younger than that (including but not limited to Baby Luna, ChibiBel, Kate 2, Matt, Maddie, or Teen Josie 8) must not be shown in sexually-suggestive or outright-sexual images on this wiki.

Assuming your image does not depict nudity or sexualization of a minor, and your image either is your own work or is a work that you have permission to re-use here, anything you render that illustrates a free item is welcome on this wiki.

I want to reuse something from the Poser and Daz Free Resources Wiki[edit]

Great! You have to keep any derivative work under a CC-BY-SA license, or a least the portion of the work that you derived from this website. And then, you can cite either the original editor(s) who wrote the content, or the Poser and Daz Free Resources Wiki. We'd like it if you also include a link back to the wiki, https://poserdazfreebies.miraheze.org/ , but that's optional. That's all.

You can sell it, do anything you want with it -- but anyone else can come along and make an even better work based on yours. (Well, we hope it's better.) If you're reusing images, be sure to check them individually, because they may be copyrighted content used under fair dealing. This is not legal advice, so use your best judgement.

Hey, you infringed my (or my boss') copyright![edit]

If you have a complaint that one of our users submitted copyrighted matter, start a topic on Robkelk's "Talk" page, and I'll try to respond as quickly as possible.

As for Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown requests, the wiki's administrator is not located in the USA. I do, however, respect the intent of such requests - there's no need to involve a lawyer, just ask.
