I understand...

But in OGA FAQ have the following advice: "some of the licenses require you to distribute the source code of your entire project for free, and allow others to distribute the source for free as well" ( So what is this licenses that force me to distribute my source code?

But... O.O

I don't understand...

From what you said, I thought that these licenses were ok for "closed-source projects". If I have to distribute my code when I use this licenses so the answer is that licenses is not ok for "closed-source projects", right?

Just one more question:

So, what licenses force me to distribute my source code?

Nikita_Sadkov, very very thanks for your answers! =D

You solved a lot of questions that I always had about licenses.

I will make a rework in my collections based in this conversation, to make the collections better and more clear about licenses and the use of the assets. Today I only save CC-BY, OGA-BY and CC0 assets. All the other stuff I put in the "Non-Commercial" collections. I will change it.. :-)

Thanks for all,

So, for LGPL is ok (for "closed-source projects") if I load a image and maintain the format (like HTML5 and Flash do) but is wrong if I have to convert it to a compiled format (like XNA with the .xnb format)? I'm thinking right?


So if I want to submit a game for greenlit/appstore/google play I just have to take caution about how the engine reads the LGPL files (sounds, sprites, etc)?


About Apple... What is the additional rights added to CC-BY? I read about some technical measures that CC-BY have and OGA-BY don't, what is this technical measures?


I'm sorry for this lot of questions. I'm just doing it because I google it a while and I really don't understand it very well.

Hi Nikita_Sadkov,


Thanks for your answer. :-)

So, just to check:


Safe to work with "closed-source projects":

CC-BY 3.0

OGA-BY 3.0


GPL 3.0

CC-BY-SA 3.0

GPL 2.0


NOT safe to work with "closed-source projects":

LGPL 3.0

LGPL 2.1


This is right? There are great difference between GPL 2.0 and GPL 1.0 (for "closed-source projects")?

Again, thanks for you reply,
