There’s no evidence to show that “piracy” hurts artists’ incomes.

So of course:

BloodSpell is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution, No Commercial Use” License.

That clear? Piracy doesn’t hurt, so they are releasing the work under a NonCommercial licence. Excuse me whilst I fire up my Che Guevara t-shirt.

Update: Bloodspell’s makers tell me that they don’t have a licence from Bioware, who make the software they use, to release their work commercially. Since the work is a movie/video, I’m guessing this has more to do with the assets than the engine (it’s Neverwinter Nights). But that explains the NC license. And makes it cool that they got it.

I will now do my people’s traditional dance of apology and offer various sacrifices to Strange Company.
