    Default Answered: Is "attribution" considered an obligation?

    From the Sencha Application Theming Contest Terms & Conditions

    [...]
    LICENSE TO PRIZEWINNERS THEME:

    By submitting and Entry, each Entrant [...] grants to the Sponsor (and their agents, successors, and assigns) the irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable, absolute right and permission [...] to use, edit, modify, copy, reproduce, and distribute any such Entry submitted by the Entrant (including related Themes) in perpetuity and in any medium now known or hereafter devised (including online and in digital media), anywhere throughout the world and in any language, without further obligation or compensation of any kind to Entrant.



    Each Entrant [...] further grants to the Sponsor (and their agents, successors, and assigns) the irrevocable, transferable, sublicensable, absolute right and permission [...] to use, edit, modify, copy, reproduce, and distribute any of Entrants trade names or trademarks, including logos, and the names of its members, as applicable) in perpetuity and in any medium now known or hereafter devised (including online and in digital media), anywhere throughout the world and in any language, without further obligation or compensation of any kind to Entrant, for the purposes of administering this Contest and for the Sponsors advertising, trade, promotional and publicity purposes, and shall not exercise its moral rights (the right to make any Entry public, right to determine the display of the authors name, and right to preserve the integrity of any Entry).

    [...]
    I guess this kills any possibility to use any content from third-parties that are using a permissive license (MIT & CC-BY), as they ask that remixes of such works should attribute the original authors by name?

  2. You're welcome to include permissive open source. The rights you've quoted are intended to cover Sencha in the event we reference you as a contest winner. Yes, there is a reference to the application for all 'authors' - which should really just be the entrant. We'll either make the update or you can take this post as clarification that this applies only to the entrant and not to the author(s) of included permissive open source works.
