Licenses at G4M

At Games for Music we will try to make the contents as open as possible, with respect to rights and preferences of all authors whose work is included.

Texts and other content

The Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License is default and the most common, but bear in mind that this applies to text. Other media, from platforms like Flickr, YouTube, Soundcloud etc. is included according to individual licensing (mentioned most often at the bottom of the text) or by the terms of the external platform.

The text of the Glossary is the safe area to take advantage of a CC license (it shouldn't be altered in this section). In articles and book reviews notice that you may find longer quotations, these are under fair use and cannot be treated as openly licensed. The Games Library section calls for a special attention of all those wishing to re-use the work. The situation there is diverse, as game creators individually decide what to allow and sometimes there is just an agreement made personally with the author for specific platform usage. You should also check the editing history (bottom links) to make sure that a re-use information was not removed as a result of vandalism (it happens rarely, records are corrected during 24 hours after the breach).

Games and permissions

We will thoroughly attribute all rulesets and even ideas (less formally protected), but feel encouraged to get to know, how the legal system of your country treats games. Exceptions occur in this matter, and what you are allowed to do with the game outside of the license and fair use liberties vary from country to country. For more on this theme you may check:
