About sold addons in the store

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Aug 20, 2016 10:53 pm

I've got a question that has been boggling me, addons that get sold in the scirra store are used by the buyers in their games, so let's say someone who bought the addon decides to put his game's capx for sale, he is required then to include the addon, that he bought, with the capx, and this is where the problem lies. I mean I couldn't figure out a solution for this. Any suggestions ? I wanna put an addon for sale in the store but I don't want it to be published by the buyers with their capx.

If I would have to be the judge, I'd say that you are in the right.
He technically sells content that was made by someone else, which is clearly not allowed.
I guess that the support will have to deal with it and remove it, if the seller doesn't change his files by himself.

Of course he is allowed to sell the capx file, my point is that he has to remove your content and maybe
put a warning on the page that says "THIS CONTENT REQUIRES X PLUGIN MADE BY X".

I haven't read the license here, but the majority of commercial game assets are not to be distributed in a way in which they can be extracted by others. I would think that selling a capx would breach these conditions. It actually presents a problem in uploading capx in a public forum, eg. In a bug report, as I think you should remove licensed assets first (depending on license specifics).
