Paint.Net Office One use


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have just discovered that a very good french office suite uses Paint.Net as its picture editor: OFFICE One v7.x. Is that official? Legally distributed?

The official link: http://oone.issendis.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=12&Itemid=31 (or here for the OEM licence)

The site screenshot in attachement.

Thank you.

I believe its not...

it claims PDN for itself, and probably sells this, even though i can't find it anywhere. The Other stuff is OpenOffice.org.

While I agree that ripping off open source projects is pretty low, I disagree with closing the source. What Rick did with the installer/resources* is sufficient.


  • [*:3ma162yt]It wouldn't be
open source, even if source code is provided.
[*:3ma162yt]Wouldn't allow porting to other platforms, like mono on linux/mac.
[*:3ma162yt]Rick stated somewhere that he gave the source so people could learn from it and use it.

*If they're using an older version of PDN without the license changes, they can legally copy and sell the resources. The new resources license

Source code licensed under the MIT license can be used for anything, including sale and use in proprietary applications. GPL is copyleft, meaning that derivative works must be released under a compatible license.

I actually gave them permission to do this about 2 years ago -- it was completely within the license rights. However, they are still distributing version 2.72 and I recently asked them to cease doing this. I still get crash logs for "OFFICE One v7 - Paint.NET v2.72". It's rather obnoxious.

Mabye cancel the rights of them using it until they update it?

I don't understand why he gave them permission.

he did not give them permission. they downloaded the source code and claimed it as their own.

Ok, I recognize that it is rather deplorable.

The MIT license is also open source. (In fact, it's even more permissive than the GPL.)

Nothing is more permissive than GPL.

Wrong: the LGPL is :wink:

independently of their infringement, it's a sure sign of the PdN notoriety! :)

sabrown100, please stop posting in questions about copyright law, as you obviously don't know very much about it. :-)

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
