Case Study and PBE Practice Licensing

July 8, 2010

We’ve made a couple of key artifacts related to the book available for download: the PBE Practice and the source associated with the book’s case study. For both of these artifacts, we’ve made them available for reuse under a Creative Commons license.  For example, within the PBE Practice, you’ll find the following copyright and license:

With this license we are allowing you to use the materials, update the materials and you can even share the updated content with others.  However, if you choose to update and then share the materials you must keep an attribution to myself and Celso and you cannot sell the updated content.
