If I use the material (GLSL code) in a project in which I use MIT licensed material with Resolume-Wire (an object-oriented application based on nodes) in the ISF (GLSL code) import element there, add additional Wire nodes/functions or two such ISF elements (one with MIT and another with CC BY-NC-SA license) or just add more functions from Wire. Compile this result to create a closed Resolume Arena plugin.

So various such plugins created in a total project (about 65) and this project total is under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license published, is this so legal? Can I get from the MIT license holders, because of the so "co-used" material problems?

I have to add that I

  1. include a listing of the plugins in table form with credits for the elements used in a PDF attached to the project. In this PDF I explicitly point out that the plugins are only to be used for Resolume-Arena and that they contain foreign material with MIT as well as CC and LYGIA licenses, and if someone is interested in the original code of these elements please go to the originals via the links in the PDF, inform yourself about the terms of use and if necessary download the foreign material there.

  2. No one can't my result, i.e. the plugins, be viewed in of such a way that the code used becomes visible again, when the plugins are passed on (is compiled)? Thus, the MIT or LYGIA licensed co-used material cannot be individually copied, freely distributed or used as such. After the compilation in Wire, the plugin is closed and the original material can (possibly) only be uncovered as illegally copied. My CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license offers increased protection for the authors of the original elements used with MIT or LYGIA etc. licenses.

  3. And I am also of the opinion that my process of creating, in particular the functional expansion and mixing, has created something new, where I, as its author, and I'am free to choose which license I use, and I also refer to the integrated elements and their licenses, please pay attention if you do at the place where I bought the material myself would also like to use it.

I want to give a gift to the Resolume Arena users, contribute to this community and not cause or create problems or trouble.

Who can please give me answers and links to my protection

    Note that the CC-NC variants are not open source licenses so this question may be off-topic here; we give some latitude to -NC but not an infinite amount. Commented Apr 4, 2023 at 10:37

  • Dear Philip Kendall I'm not very familiar with things like this on the internet in general. Am just a multimedia & video artist. Can you then help me where to place my question or which member to contact. Please something constructive. LG bennoH.

    You probably need to talk to an actual lawyer. Commented Apr 4, 2023 at 11:55
