PoshCode Logo PowerShell Code Repository

Our Terms of Service

First: we will always give you 30 days notice and allow you to remove your data if we change our privacy policy or terms of service.

PoshCode exists as a free repository of PowerShell code snippets, scripts and modules. Our goal is to build a repository of free PowerShell scripts, modules and code snippets. These terms are intended to support that goal. For all contributions we require that you make certain assertions:

You assert that all content submitted by you belongs to you: that you wrote it yourself and/or have copyright and publication rights to share it under these terms.

Dissallowed content

Illegal Activities. You agree not to post content which has no reasonable use other than illegal activities, including gambling, cracking, or hacking.

Offensive Content. You agree not to post content that is offensive, defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable.

Harmful Activities. You assert that all content submitted by you is free of adware, spyware, viruses, and other malware.

Additional Terms For Scripts

Unless you apply a specific license to a script by stating it in a comment header in the script, you agree to release any code uploaded to this site under the Creative Commons “No Rights Reserved” license. That is, you agree to waive all copyright and related rights in your script in accordance with the Creative Commons “No Rights Reserved” license available here: http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/legalcode That is, you agree to place your code in the public domain.

Don't get us wrong: we love open source, and we aren't opposed to reciprocal open source licenses, but we strongly believe they are the wrong model for a script community. Here we must not only reuse, but more importantly, we must be able to remix, and so we require the use of licenses which are easy to remix and re-use. We strongly encourage you to use the public domain dedication for your scripts, but we request that if you choose to provide license terms, you choose a non-reciprocal open source license.
