So, I think I read a long time ago, if I remember correctly, that the Japanese community has a different culture regarding the use of F2U/NoF2U. I recently came across a Japanese FE8 hack that was full of great music, and I’d really like to use some of it for my project. Will I be free to use it? or should I look for the creator and ask him
There is basically no problem if you just clearly state that you quoted from this work.
If it does become a problem, it is when you lie or are dishonest.
For example, if you lie about something that was created by someone else and claim that you created it, you will naturally be accused of lying.
It is even worse if you sell the data for make money on the dollar.
If you do not engage in such dishonest behavior, it is unlikely to be a problem.
but, If the author still contacts you directly to tell you to stop doing it, you should comply.
Basically, if I then give the credits of the material and not profit from it, will I be able to use it unless the author asks me to remove it?
Alright, I’ll keep that in mind then, thanks!
