Sugar Labs adheres to the principles of Free Software. An overview of these principles is provided by the Free Software Foundation (FSF). The Open Source Initiative (OSI) has a set of guidelines for Free and Open Source software that characterize the intentions of our community.

All software and content distributed by Sugar Labs, including activity bundles uploaded to, must be released under a license that conforms to the principles and guidelines referred to above.

You may use any license on the Fedora Project's list of Good Licenses or the FSF's list of Free Software Licenses. If you wish to use a license not on one of these two lists and believe that it fits our guidelines, please contact the Oversight Board.

This policy was determined during a 2009-12-11 board meeting and clarified at the 2011-06-09 board meeting. Additional feedback and discussion is found on the Talk Page.

Please contact the Oversight Board if you have questions about our licensing policy.
