The time has come for another competition.
Locked. Support is looking into the matter.
So lance, let me get what you’re saying here, it’s ok to distribute the swf files freely?
So if I buy DS’s Advanced XML Website and delete the .fla files and any external .as files there may be I can zip it up and put it on a warez site, or give it to my friends, hell, give it away at flash conventions or pass it out on the street, that’d be ok?
I have to give the benefit of the doubt on this one and say that there has been an error in communication, because there is no way this is what you are saying.
@ LetsDesignthe above statement would allow Flash Den users to make things with the things on this site, without it (which currently I don’t see it), none of the content on this site is allowed on the NET at all. When you run a website with flash content the SWF is downloaded to the users machine. So even making a web site is not covered in the current license agreement.There is a big difference between a browser caching a temporary file and freely distributing a swf, I’m pretty sure we can agree on that.
Sorry. I should have been more clear. No, of course you can’t buy one file and have it distributed all over the web for use in multiple projects. I’ll use an easy example. If you buy a flash file here and put it in a multi-media presentation, burn it to 100 cds, and mail them out to potential clients, you are not breaking any rules. You don’t need to buy 100 files for the 100 cd’s. It is on multiple cd’s, but it is all the same project.
Sorry to take so long. I had to ask the Cyan to make sure I was correct.
So the distinction is that you’re using the file within one project. It doesn’t matter how many people use it or play it. If you were selling copies of the game that would not be allowable, nor would it be allowable if you resold an editable version of the file. But one version can be viewed or played by infinite people. The same game can be put up on multiple sites to be viewed/played (eg. the clients site AND his portfolio site) provided you have made some changes to the original file.
So yes, you can distribute the swf as you had originally asked. Good luck.
