How we chose the license

In the last year, members of the P2PU Community underwent a lengthy and eye-opening process to reach consensus on which license would be the best for us to use. You can read about this process in our Choosing a License Compendium, which we have uploaded on this page as pdf or openoffice document. There is also a version on scribd.
