Virality of Creative Commons "Share-Alike" licenses?
Shared by AndyDent-Touchgram · 132d ago · 0 comments

A piece I've posted on Indie Hackers, my Facebook (as linked) and around a few slacks for comment.

Whilst assigning licenses to some bundled assets I realised that most shaders are under CC BY-SA-NC and became concerned about the "Share-Alike" clause meaning use of a shader on a document meant the entire document should be virally infected with those terms.

...

Tentative conclusion - we're OK as they clarify on: https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/ShareAlike_interpretation
Simply including an SA work unmodified alongside unrelated materials does not produce an adaptation

Putting a shader on a web page won't make the entire page acquire a CC BY-SA license and a Touchgram is a mixed media document analogous to a web page.

You can see more details at https://www.touchgram.com/art with explanation of our different permissions and how they map to the CC licenses.
