Uniprot is the world’s most comprehensive catalog of information on proteins.

...people shouldn’t have to run up large legal bills just to figure out how they can use our data, and the Creative Commons licenses are both well known and clear and simple." Eric Jain

Overview

Uniprot (which stands for Universal Protein Resource), the world’s most comprehensive catalog of information on proteins, is available for reuse under CC Attribution-NoDerivs.

License Usage

Uniprot is available for reuse under CC Attribution-NoDerivs. The license is viable for all copyrightable parts of Uniprot's database.

Motivations

Eric Jain from Uniprot writes,

"Even though it was clear from the outset that our data is “open access”, some people felt that having a custom license would be more “safe” and give us more control. On the other hand people shouldn’t have to run up large legal bills just to figure out how they can use our data, and the Creative Commons licenses are both well known and clear and simple."
