How are repair guides licensed? ¶ 

We license all user-contributed repair guides under the Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial Share Alike license.

You are free to republish, share, and remix repair guides as long as you attribute the source link, use it for a noncommercial purpose, and distribute any modifications of the repair guide under a similar license.

We're very open to people using repair guides in other creative ways. If you want to use a repair guide for a commercial purpose, contact kyle [at] ifixit [dot] com.
