1.1 License

This document is licensed as described in section 4.

1.2 Version

This is version 1.0.0 of the Free Speech License.

1.3 Definitions

The author of the document that has been put under this license has chosen to put it under this license. From here on that document is refered to as The Document and the author or group of authors as The Author.

1.4 Summary

This license assumes that The Right for Free Speech is an important right and should be constitutional in all countries. It tries to make a point what Free Speech is all about and that The Author of The Document only tries to exrpress him-/herself and should not suffer a major risk from that. This License also intents to be a good read or even funny.

1.5 Using This License

You can put your own documents under this license by stating such and providing this license or a link to where it can be found.

2 Terms of Use

2.1 Understanding

This license assumes that you don’t fully understand it.

This is very common in other licenses, too. Thus it shouldn’t be necessary to explicitly state this. Nevertheless, you have been warned and continue reading The Document on your own risk. All the items from this license take effect even if you don’t understand them.

2.2 Thinking

You are allowed to think for yourself.

As far as the author of The Document is concerned you may think whatever you want. This includes thinking about the contents of This Document and to build up an opinion whether you like it or not. You are allowed to think thoughts that are derived from The Document. Derived thoughts may appear in you mind while you are reading The Document and/or later when you think about The Document and/or its contents.

Thinking for yourself might be against your local or otherwise relevant law in which case this part of this license is not effective.

2.3 Speaking

You are allowed to speak.

As far as the author of The Document is concerned you may speak about your own thoughts, including those as described in section 2.2 freely. This includes the right to speak about The Document and/or its contents to other people. When doing this you are allowed to differ from the opinions of The Author as described in The Document. You are allowed to say that you don’t like The Document and/or don’t agree with it. You are also allowed to like it and to agree with The Author.

Speaking what you think might be against your local or otherwise relevant law in which case this part of this license is not effective.

2.4 Blaming

You must not blame The Author.

The Author just makes use of his/her Constitutional Right for Free Speech as is common in many countries. If The Author does not own any such right he/she is not allowed to use this license anyway.

Blaming someone might be against your local or otherwise relevant law in which case this part of this license is not effective.

2.5 Copying

You are allowed to copy The Document but there should be no need to. The Document only contains thoughts by The Author in written form. The Author states by using this license that he/she does not think that thoughts can be owned in any way or patented or copyrighted. Thus he does not own the contents of The Document and you are free to use them on your own.

More than that you are allowed to think for yourself (see section 2.2 for details on this).

Copying something might be against your local or otherwise relevant law in which case this part of this license is not effective.

2.6 Laughing

You are allowed to laugh.

As far as the author of The Document is concerned you may laugh while reading The Document and/or at and/or about its contents. You are also allowed to laugh at and/or with The Author about The Document or something completely different.

2.7 Parts of The Document

Whenever you are given a right that can be applied to The Document (such as thinking or speaking about it as described in sections 2.2 and 2.3 respectively) the same applies to parts of The Document.

3 Limitations

3.1 Freedom

Freedom is a terminus of ethics and thus not absolute. Your freedom ends where anotherones freedom begins.

3.2 Humor

The Document may contain various forms of humor such as sarcasm, irony, and may make you laugh.

If you take all this too serious you probably lack a bit of humor.

3.3 Salvatoric Clause

If any part of this license might be against the local or otherwise relevant law or become ineffective in any other way, the rest of the license does not loose it’s effect.

4 Meta License

This license is a document put under this license as you just read it.
