Hi everyone, especially atom0s, DarkByte, and all senior members.

I want to share my art with my group or anyone who want to feel it.

But i confuse about the license that i should use for my art.

Please give me your opinion about both license.



btw, my art is about gui library on windows.
At first, i want to share it using LGPL3 license.
But then i read that DarkByte use OpenCandy license.
Now i got confuse .... Sad

opencandy is no license.

Anyhow, just read them and decide for yourself, there are thousands of different licenses to choose from, and you can always make up your own

I think LGPL allows people to draw a penis on your art and then sell for money, as long as they provide the original picture as well. If that's ok with you, then LGPL can be used.

Though for art I recommend other stuff, e.g artistic license or whatever

hahaaa

Anyway youre confused about opencandy, it was a Pay per install network. Nothing to do with licenses.

You should google about licenses you can use and choose whichever feels best to you.

Then don't use a license. It's not like 99% of the internet cares about licenses.

What is your intention with what you plan to share?

Do you just want to share it for others to enjoy?
Do you want to allow others to alter the work?
Do you want to allow others to alter and distribute the work?
Do you want to allow others to alter and sell the work?

There are a lot of mini-questions that go into picking a license for something.

I just want to have answer, when i ask about update and/or alteration.
About "what" and "why".

And i want to have right, to give advise or to encourage other that my source should not be used for bad to other people or group of people, or to the user himself.


So here my own license that i made myself:
Quote:

1. This source or all idea that are yet found anywhere, within the source, are belong to me *my name, my email*.

2. Please use it as free as possible at your own risk.

3. I have right to have answer about update or alteration to the source.

4. I have right to give advise that my source should not be used for bad

Am i ask too much?
Or do you have correction to my own license?

Based on your responses, I would suggest looking into the Creative Commons licenses:
https://creativecommons.org/licenses/

These seem to suit what you want to do. Applying your own license will typically do nothing or have any benefits on your behalf if you ever had to attempt to protect your work. You are better off using a license that exists and is recognized instead.
