The P2P Foundation's Mission is to provide for and facilitate the creation of P2P alternatives. In service of this goal the Foundation also facilitates the publication of this research material.

All wiki authors are expected to look into and follow Fair Use and Fair Dealing guidelines when adding content to the wiki. This means that you should only copy text from another creative work to the extent that it is being used to support a point in your original contribution. It is not expected that all works are entirely original, but they should use some citation formatting when giving attribution so as to distinguish content that is not original.
