Note that i just want some clarification. And i grant the addon developers ever cent they earn with their addons. It’s not my point to take them away anything. The reason why i ask is that i would love to have a look at the one or another source code to learn from. Which is one of the reasons why GPL exists.
The GPL explicitely states that for software under GPL the source code must be public available. For free. Since GPL code is under copyleft. And the Blender market addons are all under GPL.
Well. You can with some research find some github accounts for some of the addons. But not for all of them. And i don’t see a single link to a github account at the Blender market. Nor any other download place for the source code there. When you want the source code, then you have to buy the plugin. Which is against GPL from what i understand.
So what does this mean for the addons of the Blender market? Is the current way of distribution illegal? Or do i overlook something here?
