View Full Version : Resolved Licensing question

05-29-2009, 02:56 PM

My question is a general one, not related to a specific script, but since I can't post this without an url:

I am creating an application that loads & displays documentation files (fe JavaDoc files). I now want the viewers to be able to search through a page. One of your scripts does exactly that and I would like to use it. The problem is: I have to have the licensing information on the page with the content itself. Every page I load already has a .js file accompanied which is the same for all the documentation files generated by the tool (like JavaDoc). This means that I don't have to load the .js file because I can distribute it together with the application itself. What I would like to do is add the DD-script to the existing .js file. Since I am not able to edit the .html files themselves, I am unable to put the licensing information in there. It also wouldn't really make any sense since you wouldn't be able to view the source of the page in any way.

I hope I am being clear, but here's a summary:
- Have an application that loads html files, created by 3th parties
- Want to use one of your scripts
- Application does not have a "show source" option for html files
- All html files already load a certain .js file that I CAN modify
- => I want to add the script to the .js file
- ==> This would brake the license agreement.

What to do?

And by the way: My application is free to download for everyone, but not open-source (although you can easily navigate to the .js file when the application is installed)

That's fine. While the Usage Terms doesn't specifically cover what you're doing above, we always try and make exceptions based on the specific situation. Good luck!
