I would like to use software with Creative Common Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license.
Can I use this software as part of an item to sell it here? In fact the software isn’t actually included in the download package rather it will get downloaded from a server since it needs a regular update.
Any advice is highly appreciated
yes you can with attribution
I’ve just found this thread
Make sure to avoid the non-commercial licenses such as the Attribution-Noncommercial CC BY -NC license. You should also avoid CC licenses that contain the ShareAlike term such as the Attribution-ShareAlike CC BY -SA license. ShareAlike licenses mean that the work you are creating (i.e. the item for sale) needs to also be licensed under the same ShareAlike license. This isn’t appropriate for our marketplaces where the items are meant to go up on sale with the Envato license.
And avoid licenses with the NoDerivs -ND term. The way the -ND license terms are written, all that is allowed is format shifting of items, and compiling items into collections (like an anthology). Remixing or adaptations are not allowed, and that would include using an item within your marketplace item (even if you don’t alter the CC item itself).
Isn’t that a problem?
if you read the license you’re free to use it in commercial works,
but when in doubt contact the original author as ask for written permission
