Re: Liblicense Guide to Licensing Agreements

The software should be able to assist in drafting licenses for most any
kind of  electronic information, regardless of media.  So you should be
able to use it for licenses covering digital information other than plain
text or databases.  However, the software is intended to cover licensing
agreements for actual information, not for software or computer programs.

As for the discussion on this list, image archives or other kinds of
multimedia information are not meant to be excluded.

Hope this helps.
