Notes:

  • 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.
  • No labels
