This post is a place that we can put all the permissions that we have to use copyrighted material so that we don't get into trouble.
Thanks!

Umm, I would like to say, that I helped draw the outlines of the buildings, and I do NOT give anyone permission to use this masterpiece. :lol:

Because C&C: Red Alert 1 has freeware status, all content (images, stats, story) we can use for Age of Alerts / Red Alert Stategy. All.

The same situation is for Tiberian Dawn and Tiberian Sun+Firestorm games, so after ending with Red Alert, we can start planning Age of Tiberium.

please check it back again: are we freely use those arts in our games that are not freeware/opensource? (i mean AOS/AOF ...) are not opensource.

Until we don't sell it, we can use it as we want. The problem would be with Red Alert 2 and newer C&C series (I'm not sure about Renegade status)

"sell": an app that has in-app transactions for donation is considered an app that is "sellable".
is that a problem?

Just delete donate option from Age of Alerts menu, and problem disappears.

There might be a turnaround the problem

What if you make an app "Age of" that allows to download, launch and update the other age of strategy app from the inside?
You remove the donation from inside the apps that have potential copyright issues and leave an additional donation button on the main apps.

Apps that have no issue and are already on the store (like AoS, AoF and soon AoW) wll keep the donation button.

i did not wanted to separate these logics among subversions - they are on the same core.

my idea is
a) maybe we can use them anyway: please link me here the "perrmission" page that says it is free.
b) to redraw (modify) the arts so they only similar to readalert version.

Permission isn't needed: these freeware games are free to use, even engine. That's why for example Twisted Insurrection team or Tiberian Oddysey can be standalone and don't require basic game.
I can ask EA about it if this will make you sure.

EDIT:

In 2008 EA released Red Alert as freeware, giving gamers everywhere an opportunity to experience this tale of a parallel past. With dozens of campy FMV cutscenes and polished RTS stages, Red Alert is a no-brainer free download.

I think that there is difference from free to use the game and free to use the arts. But since you are making it anew it should be ok.

HokanPl: i sady say that you are wrong, i spent a few minutes to check and found that it is simply "Freeware" nothing more, meaning we can NOT use any of the assets they had - even in a total free of charge game, nor in an opensource game - so NOWHERE.

... unless they grant us to use it (we can email them to let us use them for free)


so thisngs we can do:
1. find a reference (official) where they announce all arts/maps/namings as free to use/reuse/modify in any project, like a https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ or https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/ or similar licence.
2. or emailing them to let us use all assets they have.

if any of you can get any of these than we can have a jackpot making it withount wast asset making efforts.

I must ask my friend from moddb about ea email, because I can't find actual one.

But these guys got permission for everything:

Daniel, please fill in this formular as developer and send it to me (not to EA). I will write something from me (more about our new project), then I will send it to you to control my addons, and finally I will post e-mail address where we have to send it. I would do it alone, but my role.is only a concept, an idea. Developing and programming is your domain so you are higher in hierarchy ;)

Please check what I've written because I could make some mistakes ;)
Original it was PDF, but I don't have software to edit PDF. So I've pasted it to... Paint :D

Use Calibri size 11 :)

i ment the image file (like agimp file) that has the texts in text format - not only a merged image.

Or maybe just write here what should be written where and what should I correct :)
BTW. Paint has text option too, if you don't remember :P and when there's something wrong, you can: 1. change image size for a while 2. write text one more time 3. delete old one and move new text to right place 4. resize the image to original pixels x pixels :D

Thanks!

I re-thinked it and i think we must not send an image, if i were them i would trash such request (as they can not copy-paste anything from that text)

so we need to edit the pdf and write there the same texting you did.

i found your pdf here:
http://tapdroid.com/EA_Content_Usage_Pe ... 022516.pdf

here is a link how to edit a pdf online:
https://www.sejda.com/pdf-editor

Currently i dont have time to write it (running to work), but if you would edit and send me the .pdf in email that would be cool, othervise i will do in a few days, and i will send to the email you posted.

thanks!

Ok, I will do that and send this form to you, in three hours I suppose

EDIT: Sorry, I can't. In my mobile phone I have very ugly Internet (good only for posting on forums), and for few days I don't have access to public computers with stable connection because of All Saints' Day and about week long holiday.
And secondly, I want to publish news with some content on moddb.com next week and I need to model, animate and texture many things. Everything I have to do alone because I lost contact with my 3D artist (no respond from email). Story of my life, everything alone :(
