Why Free Licences?
Matt Purland, sole author of all English Banana.com materials, writes:
“I feel that the quotation at the top of this page says it all: ‘There is no wealth but life.’ What do we have of value, really, apart from life? Life is fleeting, so if somebody sees value in my work – the English Banana.com materials – and can use it to improve their quality of life, I’m very happy for them to do so. I hope that perhaps you will be able to benefit from one or both Free English Banana.com Licences. If you would like to ask me a question, or send a comment, please do contact me here.”
