Rules Regarding Redistribution and Copyright of Plugins

Recommended Posts

(If you are just here to download plugins for your own personal use, then you don't need to worry about this stern message -- it's not meant for you.)


Please note that the plugins that are published in this forum are not covered by the same copyright and license that paint.net is, unless explicitly stated by the plugin author. Each plugin author holds the copyright for their plugin(s) and chooses the distribution and licensing terms.


What this really means is: If you want to redistribute any plugin listed in this forum, you must get permission from the author of that plugin unless the author has already explicitly given permission for that.


This is a very serious matter. There have been instances of people trying to make a quick buck by bundling up paint.net under a different name and with a bunch of ripped-off plugins from here. This is not permitted or legal.


If you are here to download plugins to your own computer so that you can create amazing art and monetize that art, you're fine.  Go for it.
