The MIKE2.0 Leadership Team is still in the process of determining the exact licensing for MIKE2.0 but envisages that MIKE2.0 will be made freely available under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License or Creative Commons Attribution License. The summary approach implied by use of these licenses is described below.

Summary of Approach

This section gives a brief overview on the licensing approach to MIKE2.0, which:

Allows you to:

  • Freely use the MIKE2.0 Methodology, in whole or in part, for personal, company internal, or commercial purposes;
  • Use the MIKE2.0 Methodology in packages or distributions that you create.


Forbids you to:

  • Redistribute any piece of the MIKE2.0 methodology without proper attribution;
  • Use any marks owned by the Data Governance and Management Consortium in any way that might state or imply that it endorses your distribution;
  • Use any marks owned by Data Governance and Management Consortium in any way that might state or imply that you created the MIKE2.0 Methodology in question.


Requires you to:

  • Include a copy of the license in any redistribution you may make that includes the MIKE2.0 Methodology;
  • Provide clear attribution to Data Governance and Management Consortium for any distributions that include the MIKE2.0 Methodology
  • Release any documentation content you produce to also be under this GNU Free Documentation License (if this license is used)


Does not require you to:

  • Include the full content of the MIKE2.0 Methodology, in any redistribution you may assemble that includes it;
  • Include the source of any software from the MIKE2.0 Methodology that you used, or of any modifications you may have made to it, in any redistribution you may assemble that includes it;
  • Submit changes that you make to the methodology back to the Data Governance and Management Consortium (though such feedback is encouraged).


In summary, the GFDL license gives readers the same rights to copy, redistribute and modify a work and requires all copies and derivatives to be available under the same license. Copies can also be sold commercially, but if produced in larger quantities (greater than 100) then the original document or source code must be made available to the work's recipient. The most significant difference between the GFDL and the Attribution version of the Creative Commons License is the GFDL requirement that users must also make their content available under the same terms - i.e. the Creative Commons Attribution license is "looser" from a user perspective.

The source GFDL license can be found on the GNU Home Site
