"Note that all translations supported by SuttaCentral must use CC0 licence"

I just noticed in this readme for Bilara data

license must be set to CC0. Note that all translations supported by SuttaCentral must use CC0 licence.

I was curious about this. I haddn’t seen this mentioned before, and I know that some of the older translations on the site have a variety of licences, many of which are not CC0.

Is this just a policy for new translations?

This is the policy for translations made on our Bilara app for SuttaCentral so yes, it applies to new translations. It ensures that all our translations have uniform licensing.

Yes, older translations may have a variety of licensing, sometimes Creative Commons, often ad-hoc statements made by translators.
