I am working on software that contains graphics I didn't make, that are licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0.

Since the software contains other parts I didn't make, I want to put it under two different licenses. All the stuff I didn't/partly make will be put under the license it was under before, and my stuff will be put under some non-derivative license.

Now I'm worried that Copyleft may not allow me to do so. (because media is under CC BY-SA 3.0 and my software is based on it, it must be under CC BY-SA 3.0, too (strong copyleft) (?))

Anyway, this conclusion seems quite senseless to me, because CC BY-SA 3.0 isn't a software license.

Can I put the software under a dual license as mentioned before?

    The answer depends to a large extent on how your software is related to the graphics it contains. So, how are the software and graphics related to each other? Would the software function differently if you would use other graphics, or would the application just look slightly differently? Jul 23, 2018 at 16:00
  • look different. (that are textures for a game)
