In summary, this means you may freely use and/or modify the information on this site for educational purposes as long as you comply with the following stipulations:

  • Correctly attribute the source or sources of any material you use (whether the source is RVA Rope Study or any of the other 3rd-party sources that we provide on this site);
  • Any work you create as a result of using or modifying our information should be made available for others to freely use and/or modify under similar terms.

Our goal is to further the informed, responsible study of rope bondage, and so we are happy to see our work used for those purposes. However, we also invest a great deal of time and effort in creating the information and materials available on this site, which is part of the reason we ask for proper attribution when our work is used. In addition, we want to make sure people can review the source(s) of the information and materials from which they are learning — in order to decide for themselves whether or not the information is valid and worth following — and that becomes more difficulty to do the further when information and materials are separated from their source.

If you have any questions about proper use or attribution, please contact us.
