License for you people


I made a new license! It's nearly as strict as actual copyright, but isn't.

I honestly don't know if it's okay to start using copyright for .EXEs that were from .SB2s…
But I believe it is, but if it isn't, there's a section that fixes that.
So here's the license. I created it myself, so yeah.
— LICENSE BELOW HERE —
abbuta2006 LICENSE AGREEMENT
This agreement shall be known as the abbuta2006 LICENSE AGREEMENT and applies once downloaded.
I. Free Use
The abbuta2006 license agreement grants “minimal restriction” distribution of
“GAME” (described in VI.), however derivatives are not allowed under the “AGREEMENT”
(described in VI.) Free use is allowed when described as use without requirement of
payment and no legal consequences when used without payment (“free”).
II. Use Without Credit
The abbuta2006 license agreement grants “restricted” use without credit.
The only circumstances where the software can be used without credit is when:
The software is being distributed by “creator” (defined in VI.)
The software has been distributed for use by someone other than “creator”.
The software is being distributed for use for operations classified as “educational” (defined in IV).
III. Distribution Without License
The software may not be distributed without license unless the following conditions are met:
The use of the software is conducive to research.
The software will be defined under the MIT License with the copy-holder being the “creator”.
IF the software is being used by “creator” or permission has been given by “creator”, then the use is automatically permitted.
IF the software is being used for “educational” purposes, then the use is automatically permitted.
IV. Educational Use
Classification as “educational” meets any of the following requirements:
The “GAME” will be used for a school or for an example for a class.
The “GAME” will be used for research.
The “GAME” idea will be used for a topic.
** MANDATORY: All files infringing on the normal abbuta2006 license agreement must be deleted within 6 hours of its download. **
V. License Distribution
This license shall be hereby known as the “abbuta2006 license agreement”.

Software that is used for “malicious” (VI) purposes.
Software that infringes on copyrights.

VI. Defining Terms
The term “jurisdiction” is hereby defined as the legal jurisdiction of the United States of America.
The term “creator” is hereby given to Alvin Neo Rhaman, whose alias shall be known in the “agreement” as abbuta2006.
The term “GAME” in this agreement is defined as follows:
The software in which the “agreement” is issued to and created by abbuta2006 is defined as “GAME”.
“GAME” shall be created by abbuta2006 and be easy to verify as created by abbuta2006.
If the “GAME” is a font file (.TTF or .OTF file) then this license is null and void and shall be known under the Apache
License 2.0 (https://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0).
If the “GAME” also has pre-existing agreements that conflict with this agreement, the conflicting chapter(s) are null and void.
If the “GAME” is a Scratch file (.SB2 or .SPRITE2 file) then this license is null and void and shall be known under the MIT (Expat) license
(https://www.debian.org/legal/licenses/mit) to avoid confliction with current licenses.
Purposes designated as “malicious” meet ANY of these conditions:

If a rule conflicts with another rule and they are in different chapters, the rules shall be applied to the separate chapters. If the conflicting rules are in
the same chapter, both rules are null and void and should be replaced with the equivalent of the rule in the Apache License
(https://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0).

That's not a very nice license IMO. The following quotes are out of order, and should be read in Richard Stallman's voice if possible.


The software will be defined under the MIT License with the copy-holder being the “creator”.

I don't remember the “MIT” license saying anything about what is software or not, and who the creator is.

They encourage infringement of laws present in the United States of America.

There's a lot of silly laws (especially in the US and places where laws should exist but don't.

If the “GAME” is a Scratch file (.SB2 or .SPRITE2 file) then this license is null and void and shall be known under the MIT (Expat) license (https://www.debian.org/legal/licenses/mit) to avoid confliction with current licenses.

Is this on topic then? The license doesn't even apply to Scratch programs.

The term “creator” is hereby given to Alvin Neo Rhaman, whose alias shall be known in the “agreement” as abbuta2006.

What happens if someone else wants to use this license? Do you get ownership of it, or do we replace each copy of your name with ours? (Giving out your name is also a big no-no on the internet, too.)

** MANDATORY: All files infringing on the normal abbuta2006 license agreement must be deleted within 6 hours of its download. **

This is already implied in copyright – anything violating the agreement must not exist.

Scratch? What's that? Looks like kiddie Lisp to me.
