but surely that is not bound by law without a proper license to do so? [edit: not too sure but some may even be able to claim it as their own but so long as they dont use it for commercail purposes its legal]
i mean you make an addon for yourself and hopefully others to use, so why does it matter where they get it, its still you as the toc file author. Me, i would be happier knowing that more people can now enjoy my addon
but coding forums are bound to be elitist, i mean just look at the WAU response
I'd also like to know the answer to this. I don't want my addons included in any kind of compilations, premade UIs, guild packs, or whatever else you want to call them, whether it's manually packaged by the uploader, or dynamically packaged by the site. If you like my addon, and want to share it with other people, give them a link to the download page.
sounds an awful lot like copy right, the internet is for sharing
anyway i believe the OP was talking about core libaries
