I tried to do two things: a) highlight that there was some desire from the author for NC license that needs confirming, e.g. maybe they want it to be CC-BY-NC? b) point out, as Tobi did, that you need some public documentation of the authors intent in order to document that in the copyright > > Can you, by change, forward the original statement of "pixel", on which > > basis you wrote d/copyright, to this bug/list? > > Yes, follows the forwarded message. What we're looking for here is an unambiguous public declaration of the license from Pixel. I'm afraid the forwarded email doesn't satisfy that. It's confusing regarding Cave Story/Vorbis and MIT/BSD and nothing in it mentions Public Domain. It seems theres some language barrier here, but first you need to find out what terms the author is after (I'm assuming here that it's art and not software), the most basic starting point is this: https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Considerations_for_licensors_and_licensees#Considerations_for_licensors Only after the author has decided on terms can they go about choosing a license, which may or may not be public domain, but if it is, there needs to be a clear public statement of that, e.g. the CC0 waiver I linked.
