According to the Fedora wiki, the CC-BY-ND license is ok for
Fedora. This license does not give the FSF four freedoms, does
not fit the Open Source Definition, the Debian Free Software
Guidelines nor the definition of Free Cultural Works. Why is
Fedora accepting a proprietary license for content?
Short answer: Because we always have.
Long answer: Because the content universe is not as Free as the
software universe. We strongly prefer that items classified as content
are under a Free license, but we only require that they be freely
distributable without restrictions and that the content enhance the OS
Please note that we do not consider software or fonts to be "content".
A slightly longer explanation exists here:
I would note that even the FSF uses CC-BY-ND for its content.
If you would like for Fedora to reconsider this policy, please open a
issue with the Fedora Board here:
