All Modern Technology Podcast Network™ audio productions, and everything else published on modern.technology, are Free Content licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. You can download, reuse, remix, adapt, broadcast, and republish our content freely with our automatic permission so long as you credit Joyful Firefly, LLC as the reused material’s creator and modern.technology (or the exact page of modern.technology on which the material originally appeared) as the source, and share your version under the same or compatible terms. Licenses for reuse outside of this automatic license may be available, contact us with your queries.

For reuse and remixing purposes we recommend you make use of the high-quality lossless FLAC files of our productions available on our page on the Internet Archive (rather than the lossy MP3s from the podcast feeds) as your source material. Here’s more info on our FLAC archives.

Please note that if you make any changes or remixes to the content of our material you can’t republish your version under the exact same title as any of our original podcasts or publish your version under the Modern Technology Podcast Network or Joyful Firefly, LLC names, because that’s us and we own those trademarks. Remixing is about putting your own creative spin out there, not passing yourself off as the other creator. We know you can come up with a cooler name of your own for your project, and we’d be happy to help answer any further questions you might have about all this legal guff!
