This Label Commons Public Licence is intended to give the public the permission to use a label under certain conditions.

This [Label Commons Public Licence](https://git.fairkom.net/legal/lcpl) is intended to give the public the permission to use a label under certain conditions. Labels are used in the sense of a sign, term or mark applied to digital media or tangible material. The usage of the label without this license may be very restricted by copyright and/or trademark registration procedures now or in future.
A typical use case is that a label which is used by a wider community can now be provided by a so-called watchdog organisation, which even may register the label as a trademark and at the same time grants usage rights with only a few restrictions to the extend necessary to prevent misleading usage.
This license has been developed by the not-for-profit fairkom association, that helps to preserve common goods mainly by promoting the usage of free software. It was an affiliate for Creative Commons in Austria for many years and an active partner in CC's translation and interpretation processes. For the European Union Public License 1.2 fairkom had successfully proposed to extend its application also to works and not only to software. The CC-by-sa 4.0 and the EUPL 1.2 have been used as a template and were extended with moral rights and trademark rules.

Please send your comments to info@fairkom.eu - we are eager to know more about your use case.
Please submit any proposals for improvements as an [issue in the git repo](https://git.fairkom.net/legal/lcpl/issues). We are also eager to know your use case.
