Discussion on: I made 100 high-quality illustrations, totally free. Use it anywhere without attribution.

The only conditions are that you don't duplicate Scale, create a competitor product or sell it as illustration packs :).

Very weird license. It sounds like public domain but you can't sell. It sounds like CC BY-NC but you don't need attribution.

I want to keep this free for everyone. Don't want someone to just create an interface and charge for the illustrations.

Do you know of any premade licenses that work best for open-source projects that "allow illustrations to be embedded in (non-) commercial sites under the condition that the artwork may not directly be sold without the creator's consent"?

My favorite license is DBAD. Not sure how well it really works, though.

As a developer who work for a big company (big company = more vigilant about licenses), I wouldn't even bother asking the legal team about DBAD and WTFL, I know that I won't ever be able to use a work licensed under those. I highly recommend that you don't use this kind of license.

I think the license basically says "use it, even in commercial products, but do not sell it as your own work"

same feeling here. unDraw switching their MIT license to a “do not compete” made me incredibly skeptical, and it’s the same model here.

the benefit of open source is that you’ll never be wrapped into a dirty lawsuit over a technicality. licenses like this scare developers off.
