Hi,<br> <br> Terry raised a very good point and I would like to know if the folks at <span id="misp_compose_1" class="hm">CreativeCommons</span>.org can help us better understand CC-BY section 4.a.<br> <br> In my case I am making commercial <span id="misp_compose_2" class="hm">screensavers</span> and would like to use CC-BY 2.0 images. The trick is that the <span id="misp_compose_3" class="hm">screensavers</span> are to be distributed as <span id="misp_compose_4" class="hm">trialware</span> (like the original poster's game.)<br> <br> I understand that because the software would expire after a given period of time this might infringe on CC-BY section 4.a (the images are embedded in the binary.) So what if I also install those images in a separate folder on the user's PC. They would also be accessible at anytime.<br> <br> Would this by comply with the license?<br> <br> Best regards,<br> <br> -Melissa<br><br><b><i>Terry Hancock
