CreepTD 1.0 Licensing - CLA

Hello everyone,

work on the next version is going on pretty fast, so the next point on my todo list is the licensing issue. As you might know CreepSmash has been licensed under the GPL and for our purposes, this is not a best fit. Publishing games under the GPL might be appropriate for games shipped with a linux distribution or similar, but it might harm a project when a) anti-cheating (this is the main reason) or b) proprietary code gets involved. In CreepTD 1.0, which is a complete rewrite, I am also using proprietary code to make all this possible, some from my own company, that I am not willing to release under the GPL. So I have decided to change the license to a custom one. For contributors this means that there will be two contribution licenses available from now on. The "Standard CreepTD Contributor License Aggreement" (CLA) that is similar to the practice used till now and the "Exclusive CreepTD Contributor License Agreement" (ECLA) that gives CreepTD the exclusive rights for your contribution. You as a contributor are free to pick either license on your behalf. The exclusive license is just an add on that empowers us to actually defend our and your rights without you being required to be involved. It's the "peace of mind" thing for us and for you.

I appended both licenses to the post.

If there is already a contribution made by you included in the game, you have the following choices:
1. You may demand that we remove it from the game
2. You may select the CLA or ECLA for it

In the 1.0 release there will be included contributions that have been licensed under either one of these licenses only. So please let us know about your decision!

Cheers

Think it, design it, build it, run it. That's what I do.
