Memory Alpha contentEdit

Text contentEdit

Anyone is free to use the text content of Memory Alpha in web sites, articles, or other publications, provided you follow the guidelines of the Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial License, which establishes the following requirements:

  • you may not use the works for commercial purposes,
  • you must acknowledge the authorship of the original article, and
  • for any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work.

All article revisions added to Memory Alpha on or after CHANGEDATE are considered to be released under version 4.0 of the Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial License. If this revision is a "derivative work" of an article revision that was added before CHANGEDATE, it is considered to be re-licensed from its previous license to CC-BY-NC 4.0 unless the prior license expressly disallows such re-licensing. In this case, the new article revision is licensed under the same license as the previous revision.

All article revisions added to Memory Alpha before CHANGEDATE are considered to be released under an earlier version of the CC-BY-NC license, namely:

  • version 2.5, if added to Memory Alpha between November 3, 2005 and CHANGEDATE-1
  • version 2.0, if added to Memory Alpha between June 19, 2004 and November 2, 2005
  • version 1.0, if added to Memory Alpha between January 15, 2004 and June 18, 2004
  • revisions added before January 15, 2004 were originally licensed under a version of the GFDL.

In case of differences between two or more involved versions of the CC-BY-NC license, licensees need to comply with the more restrictive wording.

If you are simply duplicating the Memory Alpha article, the second and third obligations can be fulfilled by providing a conspicuous direct link back to the Memory Alpha article hosted on this website.

If you create a derivative version by changing or adding content, you need to both acknowledge authorship and provide access to the original copy of the text.

Important: The content of this website does NOT apply to the original works and trademarked names! The Star Trek titles and associated names are the sole property of Paramount Pictures. The administrators of Memory Alpha believe that the operation of this website falls under the definition of "fair use" under United States copyright laws.

FilesEdit

Files that are used on Memory Alpha remain the property of their original creators, and are only included on this website for purposes of illustration under fair use guidelines. Unless the original author of the files expressly grants permission, files do not fall under the scope of the Creative Commons License. In all cases, the files must be uploaded to our database accompanied by a specific note with:

  • credit for the original author of the file including a link where the original author may be contacted, or
  • the original source of the file.

You must also include information about:

  • whether the file is uploaded to Memory Alpha with express permission of the author, or under fair use rules, and
  • the source of the file, being a specific episode, film, book, other official work, a website, or any other medium.

All CC-BY-NC files added to Memory Alpha on or after CHANGEDATE are considered to be released under version 4.0 of the Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial License unless explicitly stated otherwise. If the file is a "derivative work" of a file that was added before CHANGEDATE, it is considered to be re-licensed from its previous license to CC-BY-NC 4.0 unless the prior license expressly disallows such re-licensing. In this case, the new file is licensed under the same license as the previous revision.

All files added to Memory Alpha before CHANGEDATE using the CC-BY-NC default licensing option are considered to be released under an earlier version of the CC-BY-NC license, unless explicitly re-licensed by the uploader, namely:

  • version 2.5, if added to Memory Alpha between November 3, 2005 and CHANGEDATE-1
  • version 2.0, if added to Memory Alpha between June 19, 2004 and November 2, 2005
