LDRAW.ORG PARTS LIBRARY AGREEMENT: CAreadme.txt
 
 
 
1. Introduction
 
 
 
The following is the README text for the LDraw Parts Library
 
licenced by the Creative Commons Attribution Licence 2.0 as
 
specified by the LDraw Contributor Agreement (CA). Parts which
 
fall under this agreement will contain the following line in
 
their headers.
 
 
 
0 !LICENSE Redistributable under CCAL version 2.0 : see CAreadme.txt
 
 
 
However this text is not a license! It is simply a handy reference
 
for understanding the Legal Code (the full license), which can be
 
found in the CAlicense.txt file - it is a human-readable expression
 
of some key terms.  Think of it as the user-friendly interface to
 
the Legal Code beneath.  This text itself has no legal value and its
 
contents do not appear in the actual licence.  For a deeper insight
 
please visit: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/
 
 
 
2. Rights
 
 
 
You are free:
 
 
 
  * to copy, distribute, display, and use the CA approved LDraw
 
    Parts Library
 
  * to make derivative works
 
  * to make commercial use of the CA approved LDraw Parts Library
 
 
 
Under the following conditions:
 
 
 
3. Attribution.
 
 
 
You must give the original author credit.
 
 
 
  * For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others
 
    the licence terms of this library.
 
  * Any of these conditions can be waived if you get permission
 
    from the copyright holder.
 
 
 
The LDraw Steering Committee (SteerCo) also holds an attribution
 
to 'The LDraw Parts Library' in such Derivative Works to be sufficient
 
in lieu of a full list of authors.
 
 
 
Your fair use and other rights are in no way affected by the above.
 
 
 
4. Enforcements
 
 
 
The single copyright holders are the sole entity responsible for
 
enforcements of their copyrights. For purposes of enforcement
 
LDraw.org considers the following good rules of thumb to determine
 
if a new file is not a  Derivative work.  Anything else should be
 
considered a Derivative work and an attribution would be required.
 
If in doubt contact the current LDraw SteerCo.
 
 
 
What is not considered a Derivative work?
 
 
 
  * Rendered images generated from the LDraw library. Rendering here
 
    covers any conversion of a 3D model file into a 2D image.
 
 
 
  * Model files containing references only (the source code for the
 
    part may NOT be included in any form) to parts in the official
 
    LDraw Parts Library at the time of their creation. Part files
 
    which are marked as unofficial at the time of creation may be
 
    included in full in the model file. If the sole or main purpose (as
 
    determined by the LDraw SteerCo in consultation with the potentially
 
    offending author and LDraw community at large) of the Model file
 
    is to include large numbers of unofficial parts then it WILL be
 
    considered a derivative work.
 
 
 
  * Alternative libraries of parts which LDraw.org does not own or
 
    enforce the copyright. If some or more of the parts in the library
 
    are converted from the LDraw Parts Library then they must be
 
    considered a Derivative work.
