OPEN SOURCE NON COMMERCIAL - WHY ?

--------------------------------------------------------‚Äč-------

The CC-BY-NC license we have chosen  (CC-BY-NC 4.0) gives anyone the right to download, edit and remix their own versions of the AQUAPIONEERS ECOSYSTEM designs. We think participation in design is something to be actively encouraged. By adapting, improving and creating new variations of the ecosystem we hope to encourage research, innovation and a spirit of collaboration. Because empowering people is one of the fundamental pillars of our project, we believe that everybody should have free access to this documentation to explore aquaponics and digital fabrication. 

Unfortunately in 2017 it is not yet possible to make a living out of free work... this is why we have decided to limit the free use of our work to individuals. While we hope to inspire sustainable innovation with our work, we believe that economic value created from inventions should also benefit the inventors. This is why commercial use of this documentation will only be permitted through formal collaboration agreements. If you are interested in making commercial use of this work, please get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to find a way to work together!

Welcome on board :)

The Aquapioneers team.
