I want to offer some customers a shirt (print object) from a selected GitHub repository snippet code. How does the copyright look for print objects? Does there exist a list in the web where licenses are listed with print information? Is it generally allowed to print code snippets of GitHub repositories?
To the first answer of amon: If I have understood right, I can use
CC-BY-* licenses on print objects with attribution? Here an example: https://github.com/jamiebuilds/the-super-tiny-compiler/blob/master/LICENSE is licensed under
CC-BY-4.0 - GitHub offers already a nice listing of permissions, limitations and conditions. Here the limitation is Trademark use/Patent use so I am not allowed to use this for a print object?
Another repository has the MIT License: https://github.com/ry/deno/blob/master/LICENSE it allows me trademark use.
So I have to go through each license available on GitHub (I only have to pay attention to those) and check the following (later I want to create a list of licenses which are allowed for print objects):
- Permission for Commercial use
- Permission for Distribution
- Not having limitation of Trademark use
- Not having limitation of Patent use
Is this the right way? To the attribution: I always attribute the author whatever license is used like
github.com/ry/deno by Ryan Dahl (MIT)?
the snippet you take is so small and trivial that it is not covered by copyright - amon
I can not rely on this because the search of the code snippet is automated and the automation mechanism does not matter about the triviality.
