We recently decided to change the license of the tutorials, and this is a good opportunity to break the silence on the RSS feed.

We chose the Creative Commons license CC-BY-NC-ND. For those of you who don’t speak legalese, it means :

  • BY : If you quote or use the tutorial’s webpages, you have to say that it comes from opengl-tutorial.org
  • NC : Non-commercial. Basically, you can’t make an e-book out of the tutorials and sell it =)
  • ND : No Derivatives. The rationale is not to block “forks”, but to have word in the decision. For instance, we are currently collaborating with the French site Developpez.com for a french translation. Basically : send us an e-mail !

These changes only affect the webpages. The source code remains under the WTF Public License. To quote it, you just do what the f*** you want to : create a commercial software from it, buy us a beer, etc :-)
