Solved Copyrighted Skins?

Post by Syfte on November 22nd 2010, 2:26 am

Hi there.

By my understanding Hitskin gives us "Free Skins" for our forums. So since they're free, does that mean you can take (minimal) images or codes from them and use them on your own forum (provided you give credit)?

=P No. Like, you want to use a cool background from one of the themes. Can you do it?
And I'd give them credit for it.

I believe so.
Can't see why you wouldn't be allowed to... xP
Since they are free. Unless the developer specifically asks you not to in the skin's description...
But don't take my post as an answer.. xD
Better wait for an official Smile

You are allowed to. If you make any big changes you should probably actually remove the creator's name because they may not like what you've done to their skin and don't want people to think they made a bad skin. Get what I'm saying?
