Design Science License (DSL) is a copyleft license for free content such as text, images, music and other content but not for documentation or source code. The DSL was written by Michael Stutz.[1]

The DSL came out before the formation of the Creative Commons. Once the Creative Commons arrived, the value of the DSL as an option for authors and creators diminished.[citation needed]
