For Free Distribution
All of the Dhamma offered here is offered freely: no price tag, no suggested or solicited donations, no required membership, no strings attached in any way. This is distributing the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, which is priceless and should never be sold. The best way to repay a teacher’s generosity is to earnestly put the teachings into practice―to see for yourself, for your own benefit, and for the benefit of the world.

Most of the pre-2014 works are tagged with simple ‘for free distribution only’ language. More recent content is explicitly tagged with the Creative Commons (CC) License. Both licenses are meant to guide users to use and distribute the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma as explained above.
There is some uncertainty about the meaning of ‘Commercial’ with regard to the CC NonCommercial License. For example, some consider the sale of content to support a non-profit entity to be ‘NonCommercial.’ The author and copyright holder of the content on this considers any sale, including by non-profit entities for non-profit purposes, to be ‘Commercial’ and a copyright violation.
