How tools, stories and the concepts of Doughnut Economics are licensed - and how you can use them
DEAL is making many concepts, tools and resources freely available for changemakers to use. In return, we ask that you abide by the specific licenses described below, and follow the Doughnut Do's and Don'ts when you use the Doughnut diagram.
This license applies to the tool’s name, description, main body, embedded images, and downloads such as documents and presentations. It does not apply to external content such as websites or embedded videos, unless these are explicitly specified in the main body of the tool.
For example, the Get Animated! Introducing the Seven Ways tool specifically notes that the embedded animation videos are also available under a CC-BY-SA license, and attributions are detailed in the acknowledgements section at the bottom of the tool.
By default, stories uploaded to the DEAL Community Platform remain under the ownership of the original author(s). Being more personal in nature than tools, this helps to ensure that everyone feels comfortable sharing their stories publicly.
If this license is specified, it applies to the story’s name, description, main body, and any embedded images, unless otherwise noted. It does not apply to external content such as websites or embedded videos, unless these are explicitly specified.
If a story has not been released under this Creative Commons license, you should seek permission from the author(s) before using it outside the DEAL Community Platform.
Once a Creative Commons license has been applied it cannot be revoked. You can always tell which content has been released under a Creative Commons BY SA 4.0 license by the inclusion of the following logo:
We also welcome and encourage new interpretations of the Doughnut that follow the Doughnut Dos and Don'ts listed above.
