Abstract: In July 2012, the IPA Council voted to license the IPA chart under a Creative Commons license, specifically, the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 Unported License (CC-BY-SA). The IPA still holds its copyright of the chart; under Creative Commons licenses, owners retain some rights while giving up others in order to encourage use by others. This particular Creative Commons license allows any kind of re-use of the chart (including commercial reproduction and derivative works), as long as attribution is given and the reproduction or derivative work is under the same license. The chart is now available not only from the IPA's website, but also from Wikimedia Commons.
