TEI  material is licensed differently depending on the use you intend to 
make of it. Hence it is made available under both the CC+BY and BSD-2 
licences.  The CC+BY licence is generally appropriate for usages which 
treat TEI content as data or documentation. The BSD-2 licence is 
generally appropriate for usage of TEI content in a software 
environment. For further information or clarification, please contact 
the <ref>TEI Webmaster</ref> .
