Re: [Gimp-developer] Due diligence: Permission for usage of GIMP

Hello,

I'm not sure who to exactly send this to, but I represent Iron Rook 
Computing, LLC. In the coming months, we will be releasing a product 
that utilizes some of your software. As due diligence, I must officially 
ask for permission to mention the usage of your software, link to your 
websites, and use images that show your software in action. We would use 
these permissions in the following ways:

  * In our promotional material (written, digital, or otherwise)
  * In our customer support & troubleshooting systems
  * In any instance which such usage would be required to help users
    accomplish their task
  * In any instance which such usage would be required for our employees
    to their task

It's unfortunate that these things have to be done, sometimes, to cover 
our tails. I'm not sure who's actually in charge, so I'd appreciate 
you're help in getting over this hurdle.

Apollo:
The license of GIMP (GPL) allows you to use GIMP for any purpose, so if
your question is regarding usage of GIMP, you have absolutely no
restrictions about how to use it and you don't have to ask permission to
use it.
The only restriction that applies is regarding code: as you have the
source code of GIMP available and you're free to study it and even
modify it, if your make your own modifications and plan to redistribute
them you're obligued to distribute the modified code along with the
executable.

If you're not planning to make any modifications to the code, you don't
have to worry or ask for permission.
