That was almost Rin-ish.Broomhead wrote:Don't pay any attention to them, that's what both the writer and devs want. They are understandable in thinking that KS2 is legally valid, but they're wrong. Furthermore, even if it wasn't legally questionable, morally it's taking someone else's brainchild and adding to it. Don't take peoples children and graft arms on. It's impolite and mostly illegal.
"The new developer has already confirmed they will move forward with their game, which is fully within their right to do. 4LS made Katawa Shoujo under the Creative Commons License. To be specific, this particular CCL says,
“You may not use the material for commercial purposes. If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you may not distribute the modified material.”
Which means that Music Box Studios could make a game inspired by Katawa Shoujo and distribute it for free, so long as they don’t take what 4LS made and pass it off as their own."
Um...I'm pretty sure copy-pasting the setting KS totally qualifies as "building upon the material". They could make it, probably, but they plainly could never distribute it. I love when these types don't do their homework...
