Template:Infobox software license

The WTFPL (Do What The Fuck You Want To Public License) is an uncommonly-used, extremely permissive free software license. It allows for redistribution and modification of the software under any terms—the licensee is encouraged to “do what the fuck [they] want to”.

Validity Edit

According to Bradley Kuhn, who was Executive Director of the Free Software Foundation at the time of WTFPL's publication, “the FSF’s folks had to laugh and agree that ‘DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT’ is a valid Free Software license”[1] Though the FSF suggested an indemnity clause, they do recognise the WTFPL license as a valid license.Template:Fact

Uses of the WTFPL Edit

The WTFPL is not an exceedingly popular license, but some software has been released. In addition, the license can be applied to artwork and written material as well.[2] Freshmeat, a freeware software repository, includes a specific category for WTFPL software and artwork, with six current entries, four of which are authored by Sam Hocevar (the author of the license) (as of November 2007).[3]
