I had a little PM with Selden about an update to the FAQ. This is
concerning the often asked question of what one is allowed to do with
Selden already created a post about it in the forum help section.
Now I am going to include this in the FAQ too (and subsequently in the
HTML help page [update coming]). But I wanted to have your input first
if I got things right. So here is the just compiled version of the
question. Please comment on it!
"I have created pictures/videos with Celestia. May I sell them or use
them for or in commercial productions?"
The answer to that question is twofold.
1. If the pictures and movies were created by you by using the official
distributed copy of Celestia they are yours to do with as you want. In
any case if you are using pictures/videos made with Celestia you have to
recite Celestia as the origin.
2. If you create pictures or movies using Addons, however, then you have
to abide by the license of that Addon. Most Addon creators allow their
works to be used freely for educational purposes, but forbid commercial
use. In any case it is good idea to contact the creator of the Addon and
ask for his permission.
