Readme First: Legal Notes of Published Art.

Post by Platyna »

Before posting any art contributions on this forum/website or any other communication interface which belongs to The Mana World project, you have to take under your consideration and accept the fact that any intellectual property donated to The Mana World is released under terms of GNU General Public License & CC BY-SA 3.0.

Please do not post any contributions to which you do not own the rights, or any derivative work under copyright law. This has been done before, and we cannot accept such works. Such actions are punishable by banning at the first or second offense, subject to moderator's and administration's judgment.

We also accept art contributions released under GPL-compatible licenses or from public domain. Posting a contribution on this forum/website/wiki (and other media that belongs to the project) means acceptation of the above rules unless explicitely stated otherwise.

Work to which you do not hold the rights may be posted under the "fair use" exemption, but not for the purpose of contribution to this game. The "fair use" exemption was created to allow things such as commentary, parody, research and education about copyrighted works without the permission of the author. Should you make such a contribution, be sure it is legal, and be sure to accredit the copyright holder. One good place to read about the "fair use" exemption, and copyright law in general, is:

Include license information in the post; Author, Contributors and license(s).

If you are posting for critique and would not like us to use or finish your art please state that intention clearly when posting.

All of the art that Developers submit on the development sections is under CC BY-SA 3.0 license. If in any case the work is intended to be under a different license, it will be specified on the same post as the one contaning the published work.
