If you are in the UK you now need a TV Licence to watch or record any live TV programmes on any channel no matter what device you use.

You need to be covered by a licence to watch or download almost all BBC programmes on iPlayer. At the moment, there are just a few exceptions – watching S4C TV on demand, listening to radio, and watching films or TV shows you’ve bought on the BBC Store. There may be other exceptions in the future.

If you are not licensed, you risk prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000* plus any legal costs and/or compensation you may be ordered to pay.

Ubuntu wiki is now under a CC-by-SA licence


Choice of License

  • It was originally planned to put material on the wiki into the public domain. However, after extremely wide consultation with the community on this issue, many users objected that they would be unhappy with material contributed by them being used in non-free derivative works. As a result it seems clear that a free sharealike license should be used.

  • The [WWW] CC-By-SA license is a good choice, for many reasons:

    • It is used by the system documentation,

    • It is used by the Ubuntu forums,

    • It is used by the Official Ubuntu Book,

    • It is a popular and well known license.
