We’re not lawyers here at www.islisp.info, which means you should consult an actual lawyer if you’re in any way concerned about your actual legal exposure, but our informal recommendation is the following:
For information on the process used to create the above specification, see the “History” page at this site.
If you need to refer to the actual ISO document, you should order a copy for your own reference from ISO. ISO is the only source of ISO documents that we know of. We are not some kind of cheap second source for them.
If you need to make derivative works of the ISO document, you should negotiate the use of the ISO name with ISO. You should not assume you are free to use it. We wouldn’t know, because we aren’t them, but we presume that ISO has specific guidelines for how its name may and may not be used for endorsing things.
If you want to make a derivative work of something without asking for someone’s permission, you should prefer the public domain version (which is all we’re letting you download here anyway), since that version requires no one’s permission. However, you should be aware that it has no ISO standing and so should not be referred to as an ISO standard, nor as a derivative of such a standard.
