    Most important aspect of AAE is ease of use. I am convinced that for this we need to keep addon dependecies at the minimal possible level.

    There is nothing that would prevent you creating such a mission outside the addon, distribute it separetelly and mark it so that it requires both addons. The intention is that you need to be able to install the addon and play it demo mission to see the addon in action (no matter how simple the demo mission is), not having to solve any addon dependencies.

    Are we allowed to use custom music, or will that bring about such serious legal issues that bis cant dare list them on the aae page?
    If you mean by custom music a music you don't have rights to distribute publicely, the answer is:

    we'll never list any link to a file that we positively know it violates someone elses copyright.

    And generally, it's a bad idea to copy someones music and use it within a file that you want to share over the internet. You clearly violate copyright of the author of the music by doing it. I understand a movie soundtracks or professional bands are producing top quality music and it adds lot to the missions but it doesn't justify for violating copyright of its creators.

    I believe in these cases addonmakers can use computer reworked .mp3 versions for mission soundtracks. Not very high quality though, but atleast you do not use the original copyrighted version.

    I am not so sure about that. The copyright protects until 70 years after the death of the artist. Until then, published copies (or cover versions) must have his permission (or of the label, that represents him). However, I am not sure about all the details. You surely can use an own version of 'The ride of the Valkyrie' by Wagner. However, I am not sure about a record of it conducted by the London Symphonic Orchestra...

    You believe in something that is not true in most cases.

    Converting the music into any format still doesn&#39;t mean it&#39;s not copyrighted. Public peformances of any kind are usually forbidded when you buy music CD (unless very rare case when the work is declared as public domain) and you would have to contact the publisher of the music and the author if you want to give their creation in any way to public.

    Oh...i thought midi files was just as mobile phone-ringtones - that they are just based on a well-known melody. Yea, well afterall those large music files add a lot of unnecessary megs to the mission.pbo&#33;
    So with TheAvonLady&#39;s AMORE system, a user adds his/her soundtrack and at the same time he/she agree to a policy saying that it can be freely distributed in any OF mission then?&#33;
    But i get you, and i bet that is the reason why Seventh is behind all the melodies in OF

    This kindof depends on the copyright law you have on your country, but at least in Finland its perfectly legal to "play again" some song an distribute it as you wish, ie. you cannot copyright a melody. (Lyrics for example are a different story, thats why cover songs usually dont have their lyrics printed on the cd booklet)

    The whole thing is different if you take an existing recording and copy it around. It doesnt matter if it loses quality or is in different format, but if its comes from a copyrighted source its illegal to copy it without permission.
