I would like to release some code and some documentation to be distributed freely, but not if it has been modified in any way. Basically, needs to be shared "as-is". The reason is I would like to retain control of all modifications without making it it closed source. Is there a commonly available license that allows for this?

  • I am happy for it to be distributed for any purpose, commercial or otherwise as long as that is without modification and with full attribution. I am not concerned about others making profits through it. – Praetoria Jun 20 '11 at 12:35

I think the Creative Commons "Attribution No Derivatives (BY-ND) license" is what you want? Otherwise check the Creative Commons website, it has a license chooser application that helps in selecting the correct license.
