The text of Weezerpedia is copyrighted (automatically, under the Berne Convention) by Weezerpedia editors and contributors and is formally licensed to the public under one or several liberal licenses. Most of Weezerpedia's text and many of its images are co-licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 Unported License (CC-BY-SA) and the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts).

The licenses Weezerpedia uses grant free access to our content in the same sense that free software is licensed freely. Weezerpedia content can be copied, modified, and redistributed if and only if the copied version is made available on the same terms to others and acknowledgment of the authors of the Weezerpedia article used is included (a link back to the article is generally thought to satisfy the attribution requirement; see below for more details). Copied Weezerpedia content will therefore remain free under appropriate license and can continue to be used by anyone subject to certain restrictions, most of which aim to ensure that freedom. This principle is known as copyleft in contrast to typical copyright licenses.


Weezerpedia shares nearly all of its copyright policy with Wikipedia. For the copyright policy that Wikipedia uses, which is a fuller, more detailed version of this page, see here. The authors of the text above can be found here.
