Hi Raagan,

as said in the other comment that is very generic. Tell me what you re planning to do and how come you need another license. Until that the answer is no.


Also this piece of work is based on another artists work (BartK):

Without his permission I can't change any license or give permission either.

Hi Angryboy,

as long as my name appears somewhere in the credits, feel free to do whatever you want with the track.  I d love to see what you made with it though. feel free to send me a link to it :)

The last part is purely optional though. Good luck on your collegework.

Zuxal, selling GPL or CC-BY-SA is not a problem. It might be only a problem, if you re not willing to (or cant) relicense the rest of it as the same license. Selling GPL games is OK, not sharing the source when doing so is not.

Zuxal, basically GPL and CC both build upon copyright laws, which differ for each legislation. Is a game derived from the art it uses is not a simple question. As far as I know this can't be even defined in a license, but depends on the copyright laws. I would love to see some court settling this issue, but even then it would just apply to one legislation.


Just my two cents and a short warning. The rest is up to you.

Heh, that is a long discussion believe me. And majority rules don't apply to copyright. Do whatever you want, this is nothing but a fair warning.

Personally I am just happy this beautiful music can stay on OpenGameArt.

I just found the album on the internet archive:

The License.txt states the same license we use here. This should be proof that the author changed the license and we're still allowed to distribute it without any change.


Zuxal, even though it has no NC clause, it might be still problematic using it in a proprietary commercial game, because of the SA clause. It is not clear if you have to license more of the game under the same. This is not straight forward and hasn't been tested in any legislation yet as far as I know.

That's interesting. It's been 6 years since I uploaded it. I always been respectful of the CC terms used, even asked for permission to re-lincense if the CC version wasn't the same as the one we use on OpenGameArt.


I am quite sure I didn't ask Harold Azmed for permission on this one, only wrote him that we re using his works. My guess is that he changed the license of the music on Jamendo (which is a feature there). In that case we would be legally allowed to keep redistributing it under the same license according to


I remember omitting a lot of amazing tracks because they had ND or NC clauses. I am quite sure that it had the same license I uploaded it with and you re the first people to comment on this, altough the source has been linked for 6 years.

Sounds great! I am a big fan of Heroes-like battle games and d love to see this track in your game!

You re welcome! And that is a nicely done game. Only problem is the loops don't work well on my box, there is always a gap before repeating the background track.
