I would like to ask a question about the use of music
tracks for the GPL game Freeciv. I've been in contact
with a musician and he has agreed to give permission to
allow some his of tracks to be used for Freeciv as long
as he's given credit.
"All tracks performed by Chris Abbott and Alistair "Boz"
(c)1986 High Technology Publishing Ltd., (p) 2001 High
Technology Publishing Ltd.
taken from the CD "Back in Time 3", used with
permission. More info at http://www.c64audio.com.
Does a licence like that cause any problems? If you give
permission to use your music (a datafile) for a project
would that automatically place it under the GPL or do the
full copyrights for the song itself still remain with the
I don't believe there are problems with this. But I would
like to verify with someone in the know before i give the
final go ahead.
Thanks in advance,
Thomas van Kooten
