The Conceited Artists' License
This license is supposed to be suitable for artwork, such as
music, pictures or computer games. However, it is not fully
compliant to "The Free Software Definition" or to "The Open
Source Definition", as one could exspect in the first case,
because there is one major difference:
While coding programs is a monotonous job with no feelings
involved, creating artwork is more like building furniture
with an axe. That is why artists usually don't want you to
change, remix or perform their work. Maybe they don't even
want you to use it commercially.
Therefore, this license will only grant you some very basic
rights, only. If you want more, please feel free to ask the
artist for a special permission.
Permission is granted to any member of the public, to copy,
distribute, broadcast and publically play back the unchanged
work, for non-commercial purposes, as long as the requirements
of this license are followed.
When the work is presented to the public, the artist has to be
credited. Also, all people who receive or percept the work,
have to be informed about their rights under this license.
The work must not be exported to Iraq, be distributed together
with pornography or communistic propaganda on the same medium
or be used for genetical engineering.
