Is CC-non-commerial music usable in game?

Post by Saphy » 18 Jul 2008, 05:27

I found some interesting music remix in ccmixter.org, such as this:

Is the Creative Common non-commercial license compatible with TMW?

No, not really. The GPL explicitly allows commercial use.

Isn't GPL for software only?

I think Its preferable to have player made content, the less we take from 3rd parties the better :!:

Agreed, we have a fair few people working on music right now anyway.

All official content of TMW is licensed under the GPL. Thus we can not accept any content which may not be used commercially.

  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

Sounds suspiciously too familiar to me and yes, silly enough of a matter, but legal issues bind us from using CC-nc. Which sometimes is sad.
This message used to be meaningful.

No. It was designed for software, but can be used for anything.
