Generic question: how long the sub last, and can you integrate 3rd party code?
I am curious to know basically which are the limitations here, for GL.
The fee is honest, and even more honest, is that the game stays in your hands, so nobody takes it away with the excuse of the "work for hire" and such (if you ever work for a sw company, you will see what it means to loose any right on whatever you invent, while you work for them).
I am interested in particular about the lenght of the sub: does it expire? Do you have a specific time to put something on your account, or it stays on forever, independently if you are done with your game or not?
Also, is there a restriction about 3rd party code? Like if I use a library or a DLL which is public ?(non free software, since free software has the limitation that anything you make with that code, can only be free software and not paid software). Credits are obviously a must, but I was not able to find an answer looking at the pages here.
Also last thing: does GL protects the IP of the subs? Like, if I present here a game with a rolling ball that has to avoid IRS agents (forgive me for the whimsical example, it is purely to have an example), and someone grab the same idea and release a game which is a clone of mine (but better? LOL), do I have any protection from GL, legally speaking, or it is a free for all thing....like if I would promote my indie game on my personal website?
If I have a producer and publisher, the company cover me legally; is the same once that I get into GL?
Thanks a lot!
