Famous Author Brandon Sanderson Has Released Book "Warbreaker" Under Mostly Free Licence

Here’s a link to the PDF copy, with a short foreword explaining why he’s done it and what the exact licence is. I think this a really cool book, I’ve got the paper copy and really enjoyed it. Hope you guys can too…



What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy

Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
