The license of the "Frogitto" sprites?


#1

@VonBednar, are you ok with using a MIT license for the “Frogitto” sprites you have made? I would like to have them included in an example of a Python game in Pokitto. The code is under MIT license.

The sprites in question are here:

Of course! Feel free to add under MIT license.

Once you have the project going, let me know - I wouldn’t mind writing something for pokitto, and I feel I know enough Python to actually pull it off :D\


#3

Great! I am going to do that very soon. @VonBednar, is this text ok for you if I add it to the top of the pixel data source file?

That is perfect :slight_smile:

I think really sprites ought to use a Creative Commons licence since they’re art/data rather than code.
MIT specifically mentions ‘software’ whereas CC licences talk about ‘material’.

CC BY 4.0 is the most MIT-like in intent:
free to distrubute, modify and profit from as long as credit is given.

It’s up to you, I just think CC makes more sense.

Ok, this way then:
