Copyrighted material Question





Dwyer17
I understand the rules clearly say that users are forbidden to use copyrighted material on their website. Does this include copyrighted material that is being used with permission from the copyright holder? Thanks! Very Happy

Almost everything you make is copyrighted by yourself, so that would be hard. Wink

To avoid confusion, this is about stuff that isn't copyrighted by yourself and where you don't have permission (from the copyright holder) to distribute it. In the case of anything music-related you also need prior permission from me and place a legal.txt file in the same directory (explaining that distributing the music files is legal; it is you or your group made them).

Is freeware (use as desired) or linkware considered copyrighted material? Can we use those freely?

thanks

You should check the license/documentation. Usually you aren't allowed to distribute them.
