Game news from Slashdot
SeanCier writes “We’re a small (two-person) iPhone app developer whose first game has recently been released in the App store. In the process, we’ve inadvertently stepped in it, bringing up a question of the GPL and free software ethics that I’m hoping the Slashdot community can help us clear up, one way or the other. XPilot, a unique and groundbreaking UNIX-based game from the early/mid nineties, was a classic in its day, but was forgotten and has been dead for years, both in terms of use and development. My college roommate and I were addicted to it at the time, even running game servers and publishing custom maps. As it’s fully open source (GPLv2), and the iPhone has well over twice the graphics power of the SGI workstations we’d used in college, we decided it was a moral imperative to port it to our cellphones. In the process, we hoped, we could breathe life back into this forgotten classic (not to mention turning a years-old joke into reality). We did so, and the result was more playable than we’d hoped, despite the physical limitations of the phone. We priced it at $2.99 on the App store (we don’t expect it to become the Next Big Thing, but hoped to recoup our costs — such as server charges and Apple’s annual $99 developer fee), released the source on our web page, then enthusiastically tracked down every member of the original community we could find to let them know of the hoped-for renaissance. Which is where things got muddy. After it hit the App store, one of the original developers of XPilot told us he feels adamantly that we’re betraying the spirit of the GPL by charging for it.” Read on for the rest of Sean’s question.

Standard media formats and licensing: JPEG versus MPEG – Free as in beer or Free as in ‘This is a holdup!’

July 31, 2009

It is interesting to see the differences in approach between the ISO JPEG group and the ISO MPEG group on IP. Licenses, even peppercorn payments, are a real stumbling block for artisan developers, who were the bedrock of FOSS until the coporates co-opted it. You cannot attach payment to something you give away for free: [...]
