Copyleft Attitude : the Free Art license

Free Art license
[ Copyleft Attitude ]

version 1.1

Preamble: see at
With this Free Art License, you are authorised to copy, distribute and
freely transform the work of art while respecting the rights of the
Far from ignoring the author's rights, this license recognises them and
protects them.
It reformulates their principle while making it possible for the public
to make creative use of the works of art. Whereas current literary and
artistic property
rights result in restriction of the public's access to works of art, the

goal of the Free Art License is to encourage such access.

The intention is to make work accessible and to authorise the use of its

resources by the greatest number of people: to use it in order to
increase its use, to create newconditions for creation in order to
multiply the
possibilities of creation, while respecting the originators in according

them  recognition and defending their moral rights.

In fact, with the arrival of the digital age, the invention of the
Internet and free software, a new approach to creation and production
has made its appearance. It also encourages a continuation of the
of experimentation undertaken by many contemporary artists.

Knowledge and creativity are resources which, to be true to themselves,
must remain free, i.e. remain a fundamental search which is not directly

related to a concrete application. Creating means discovering the
means inventing a reality without any heed to realism.
Thus, the object(ive) of art is not equivalent to the finished and
defined art object.
This is the basic aim of this Free Art License:
to promote and protect artistic practice free from the rules of
themarket economy.
