Why is it so hard to detect the licensing and copyright information of source code? Because it is a tedious and often confusing task for developers to provide this information.

The REUSE project changes that! With three simple steps, we make adding and reading licensing and copyright information easy for both humans and machines. This way, reusing Free and Open Source Software which complies with the REUSE best practices becomes simple for other developers, compliance officers, and lawyers.
