hi all, i would like some clarity on a few rules, licences, public domain, gpl, creative commons
those of you that remember my first postings here would surely say i need it…:o
I have read the GPL but don’t really understand,
sorry but i am waging a war against my brain cells:)
So what can I do? What can’t I do? there are lots of grey areas.
(no longer in my brain)
but in the whole gpl set up and the whole you don’t own the blend/do own the render.
can’t publish a game unless it is in .blend form: therefore software dependent and going against the whole cannot be made to rely apon other software thing and seemingly doing what the ideals are trying to prevent anyway?
What are the rules if i modify your model?
What are the rules if i modify your script?
What if i want to sell my game made with blender?
What if i want to post a blend but it contains your material librarys?
What if i cannot find you to ask your permission?
I know some of the answers, be safe and always credit the original author…
but there really are a lot of grey areas.
They are confusing and may even scare off some blender users and potential developers. what if they scare off potential investors?
I’m sure i’m not the only one who has these questions and there needs some clarity.
I’ll put some place holders here.
