@Gargron what's the license on that No Fun Allowed image?
@djsundog i dunno. Is that important? I just included it on the page for giggles
@Gargron I dunno. Can I ignore the license on mastodon if it's just for giggles?
@djsundog i don't get this
@Gargron you're using someone's artwork in part your AGPL licensed project without attribution or confirming that your use doesn't violate the artist's license for use of their art.
@djsundog i don't think release notes are in any way part of mastodon the software, not any more than bug reports people submit. Plus the image is an old meme (it's on kym for example)
@Gargron I am glad we have reached this not fun resolution. Thank you for looking at this very serious matter very seriously. May the fun go ever unfunned.
@Gargron @djsundog (copyright protects the work for 70 years after the death of the author, then work becomes public domain. Also in most cases documentation has its own license, like FDL or CC-whatever. Since AGPL is a software license, its terms are hard to interpret on any other forms of a work like texts and images. And yes, licenses ARE important and should be followed.)
