We want the information to be accessible to anyone. We also want you not to ask us for permission every time to print a copy of our content, distribute it to your students, spread it to other people who are passionate and interested in the subject. We want the cultural heritage on which we are investing our strengths to be at your disposal as much as possible, and as free from constraints as possible.

However, we also believe that the work done by anyone who works at Venipedia® — including collaborators — must be protected and meet the publication requirements that they ask of us.

To be able to reconcile the protection of the work done with the freedom of use of the contents, we have chosen the Creative Commons license - Attribution - Non-commercial - Non-derivative works 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0) which, in short, means that you are free:

  • to reproduce, distribute, communicate to the public, exhibit in public, represent, perform and recite this work;

Under the following conditions:

  • Attribution - You must attribute authorship of the work in the ways indicated by the author or whoever licensed the work to you and in a way that does not suggest that they endorse you or the way you use the work.
  • Non-commercial - You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
  • No derivative works - You cannot alter or transform this work, nor use it to create another.

This is the license that protects all of our publications, unless otherwise indicated.

The full license text, which you are required to read, is available on the official website .



It could happen that a collaborator requests maximum protection for the contents that he decides to share with us through Venipedia: although it will always be our attention to make it clear that a publication as free as possible - for non-commercial uses - favors culture and knowledge of the topic. treaty, there can be various reasons why this is not applicable and therefore the condition that a content is published with the normal regulation for copyright, the classic "copyright - all rights reserved", could occur.

In this case you will find an indication on the relevant page, complete with any additional instructions for use.

Public domain

In other cases, you will be able to consult material that falls within the "public domain" category, or content on which the constraint on copyright has legally lapsed and is therefore freely usable for any purpose. Also in this case, where the material falls within this case, explicit communication will be given.

Other cases not foreseen

In any other case not described here, a clear communication will be given on the page containing the document / material published.
