Texture License in minetest 0.4.8 build?

by LRV » Post

Are the files from Cisoun's WTFPL texture pack licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 or WTFPL? https://github.com/minetest/minetest_ga ... ds/default

While I'm not a lawyer I'd have to imagine that a texture pack with WTFPL in the title would be licensed under WTFPL, as much as you can argue that being a real license anyway.
Again I'm not a lawyer. if you're worried about somebody suing you consult a real lawyer or don't use the textures.

I believe WTFPL can be relicensed to anything, so if you take them from Minetest, they're CC BY-SA 3.0, and if you take them directly from Cisoun's pack, it's WTFPL.

I could be wrong, but I think that's how it works.
