- Draft license here.
- Should we offer more than one? Could, but we want to avoid confusion. People still ask about GPL versus LGPL.
- Include a known open source license, like CC-BY or MIT? Much less work for lawyers. Those licenses don’t restrict use, e.g. you could set your next film on Moana Island. OTOH, donations with a more permissive license are always great.
- Sean: Legal concerned about vagueness in first clause.
- Action Item: Show to your lawyer. If you work for a big company that might contribute assets, use assets, or both - please show to legal dept, see if you can talk them into it, or let us know what concerns arise.
- Michael will ping the ASWF legal council.
- Having a license in place may be a prerequisite to asking for asset donations.
