The license LIMSwiki uses grants free access to its content in the same sense that free software is licensed freely, allowing content to be copied, modified, and redistributed if and only if the copied version is made available on the same terms to others and acknowledgment of the authors of the LIMSwiki article used is included (a link back to the article is generally thought to satisfy the attribution requirement). Copied LIMSwiki content will therefore remain free under appropriate license and can continue to be used by anyone subject to certain restrictions, most of which aim to ensure that freedom.
