Scrabble3D: Free of charge! Thread closed

I was just told that Softonic is charging a service fee of 2,99 USD (http://heiko-tietze-scrabble.en.softonic.com/download). Please do not send any money for "faster" downloads, unnecessary virus checks, and brighter logos. Use the upper free link to Sourceforge - it's very fast and reliable, and always up to date contrary to Softonic. Maybe your money will find the way to the people that had real effort (http://scrabble.online.de.vu/ -> Links)

I was just looking around for some reviews and critics and found this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/Scrabble-3D-Windows-...s-/180503406657
I will file a complaint and would like to remind you: Scrabble3D is absolutely free of any charge (as well as use of game server)..

Of course, you may donate money

Zitat von ebay seller
... thanks for your message. I'm sorry to cause you any bad feelings, but are you aware of how the GNU GPL open source public license works? According to the license, anyone is legally allowed to market and distribute for a fee any software that uses this license, it's fully legal and moral.

What I'm providing for people is a service of receiving the program on a real CD disc (instead of just an internet download file) that even comes with an easy to use front-end installer. A lot of people just prefer to have their programs on a real disc like this, something they can hold and keep on the shelf. In the auction listing at the bottom I clearly state that all the software is available under the GNU Public License.


With next release I'll place a better licence text at the about box with exclusion of any charge!

CLOSED

Yesterday, 12th of May, 2012, the License for Scrabble3D has been changed from CC-N3 to GNU General Public License (GPL) v3 with the update Patch 27. This means that even commercial use is permitted:

Zitat von http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html
Since free software is not a matter of price, a low price doesn't make the software free, or even closer to free. So if you are redistributing copies of free software, you might as well charge a substantial fee and make some money. Redistributing free software is a good and legitimate activity; if you do it, you might as well make a profit from it.



That's why I have closed this thread, which is out of date now.

Discussions in English about License questions should be continued on Licence .
