Here we go again :
Here the rule is - it matters not if a thread, post or game is intended to be developed for distribution "Free" or "for Sale" (commercial gain) or "other" if it contains materials considered by Moderators to be containing materials of a nature which may infringe others copyrights.
Please be clear about this. With regard to copyrights of any kind.
What goes on outside of the forums in the wider world is not relevant here.
What you can and can not do here is governed by the rules of these forums as interpreted by the Moderators :
Copyrighted materials of any kind cannot be displayed or distributed from these forums.
What constitutes an infringement of copyright will be determined by the Moderators at their discretion and action will be taken or not against such threads, materials and or the posters as decided by them appropriately in each individual case.
Thus threads may be locked, materials removed, posters penalised appropriately.
Clearly if you wish to invest large amounts of your valuable time in an endeavour which does not conform to the above then you do so at your own risk so it is in your best interests to follow the above.
If you do not the its not likely in such cases that you will be successful here.
You personal opinions about copyright issues or concerns Moderators may have about materials at these forums, do not count here.
All such threads are highlighted and marked clearly to Moderators so they can all clearly see them and keep them under close scrutiny. If they are considered in any way to come anywhere close to an infringement of copyrights or be likely to bring TGC or these forums into disrepute as interpreted by the Moderators, then such threads will be terminated permanently and any other additional actions deemed necessary taken.
Quote: "Game will be free, project is really based on "educational" purposes so I don't think that copyrights will be the problem at all."
Following that line of thinking will result in failure of this project here. Do not quote external content here regarding copyright law. What is allowed and what is not allowed here at these forums is decided by the Moderators. Period.
I will leave this open for the moment and suggest that my comments are adhered to and the content of the thread and any other similar appropriately tailored to follow them. If not they may be ended without further debate.
The considerations above will be strictly enforced in all cases : I trust that is quite clear.
