Default Request for use two Alice pictures - 12-22-2009, 07:11 PM

Hello Alice Team,

We are two computer engineer students from Spain and we are working in our final project.

We are working in the spanish version of the game and as we are translating everything we have also translated a guide for the game.

This guide is a kind of a little book for the students to learn how to use Alice,

We would like to use an Alice photo with a coup of coffee and another one (on top of this forum).

Can we use these pictures?

Thank You in advance.

Irene and Sergio.

Is this project a world made with Alice, or a program based on Alice, but translated?

If it's a world made with Alice, you can, because that's a product of Alice and uses Alice photos and logos anyway.

If it's a derivation of the original source code of Alice, but altered in some way from the original, then you can't because of the legal implications of using a copyrighted name while not owning the copyright or using the original copyrighted product (in its unchanged entirety).

If this doesn't answer your question, try asking lanceA. He's pretty knowledgeable about this stuff and (if I recall correctly) participated in the first discussions about this very topic.

Our project is not a world made with Alice, is been a translation job
from english to spanish of the open source Alice 2.2, we have translated the interface and all the texts and images of the programming environment Alice (IDE).

Because of copyright reasons, we have changed the name of the product
to "Alicia" (spanish name of Alice) and besides translating the software we have created a 40 pages guide call "Gu√*a Didactica Alicia" ("Alicia Educational guide") to explain spanish teachers and students how Alicia works.

We will be very gratefull if you let us use the image of the Alice
cartoon to set it on the front of our educational guide and if you could approve that we keep using the Alice Splash Screen at the start of the program but with the spanish title "Alicia".

Also we are going to edit this educational guide through lulu.com and to distribute it on Amazon as a product made by students and for students.

Thank you for helping us out.

Irene and Sergio.

You translated the whole Alice program into Spanish? That must have taken a lot of time and programming skill. I didn't even know that that was legal, did you get permission from the Alice team to even make a Spanish version of it? I don't think just changing the name is good enough. Its like me taking the Harry Potter Series and just changing its name to Henry Adams or something, and saying it is my book.

Once i read a Harry Potter book. It wasn't all people make it out to be, but it was fairly intresting.

But what does that have to do with Spanish translation of Alice?

Nice job guys!
That's really cool What you are doing.

im just asking if they have permission of taking the whole Alice program and translate it and change its name? I'm pretty sure you need permission to do that.
