Jacob Dawson's Personal License
September 1, 2018
All of my original work, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under the Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0 license. Websites like Deviant Art, Vimeo, and Flickr all have the ability to mark content with Creative Commons licenses, or include licensing metadata. In that case, the license associated with the work should be treated as the official license for that work. In cases where no licensing information is given, this license can be assumed.
This license does not extend to work done for me, either as part of a commission, trade, or gift. In that case you must check the actual license applied to the work, or assume no license if none is given. If you are able to gain permission, from all parties involved, to use that work in conjunction with a CC BY-SA license, then you may apply this license to that work. You do not need to ask my permission.
What follows below is my personal interpretation of the CC BY-SA 4.0 license. It is not meant to be a replacement for the actual license, and does not constitute a legally binding agreement. For exact details on the allowed use of the work, please refer to the actual license.
You are free to modify and redistribute my work, including for commercial gain, as long as you both: A) credit me by name ( Jacob Dawson ) for the original work with a link back to my user page, or wherever you originally found the work; and B) license your modifications of the work under the same CC BY-SA 4.0 license, or any later version, or comparable license.
You must disclose any modifications made when distributing modified versions of the work. You may not give credit in such a way as to imply support or endorsement, of any product or cause, associated with your use of my work. All credits contained in the original work must either be left unaltered or be included in your crediting of the work.
Basically you are allowed to share and use my work, as long as you give me credit, and are willing to grant others the same opportunity. I place this license on my work in the hopes that others will find it useful, and will be able to use my work in their own creative endeavors. If you have any questions regarding this license, or a particular use of my work, feel free to contact me.
If you use my work in your own project, please let me know. This is purely a request, and you are under no obligation to contact me. I like to know how my work is being used, and if I approve of your work I can share it with others. This helps the community, and helps us both gain more exposure.
I want you to know that I have thought long and hard about this change, and I do not do so light-heartedly. I believe that this new license better reflects my ideals and helps to support the sort of free and open culture I wish to promote. If this causes anyone inconvenience, I do apologize. If anyone wishes to use my work outside the terms of the license, please contact me.
For those curious, its going to be a big family Christmas. Both my brother and my two sisters each have families of their own, and we live far apart, so it's very rare to get all of us together like this. We've rented this big house down in Florida, so we can celebrate Christmas together on the beach. It's going to be a lot of people all in one place, but I am very excited! This will likely be the biggest Christmas we have ever had! I may post some photos once I get back, as long as they are not too personal.
See you all next year!

I have always been a proponent of the free exchange of ideas and information, supporting organizations like Creative Commons and the Open Source Initiative whenever possible. However, what most people don't know is that there are two distinct types of free content on the internet. The distinction between these two types is a crucial and ongoing argument over what it means exactly for content to be 'free'.

I am sharing this so that I have a chance to win a free art raffle! I think you are still able to enter before the 24th, but don't quote me on that.

All of my work, unless otherwise specified, falls under the following license:
You are free to modify and redistribute my work (not including work done for me) as long as you give me credit. It is not necessary to ask my permission. Credit need not be given in-line, but should be easily found. Credit should mention my name (Jacob Dawson) and link back to wherever the work was original found. Works published under the pseudonym Zackery James should be credited in that name.
It is easy to identify work that has been done for me. If I give credit to someone else in the work itself or the description of the work, then it is done for me. In that case you need the permission of that other person in-order to modify or redistribute the work in addition to complying with this license.
You may NOT give credit in such a way as to imply that I endorse your use of my work, or that I support your product or message. You may use my work for commercial, religious, pornographic, or any other intent as long as you follow this rule and all other rules outlined in this license.
If you post fan-art of any of my characters, it must be clearly marked as such. Failure to do so could be considered a form of endorsement, and thus be in violation of the license. Commissions and trades are not considered fan-art, as I am giving you explicit permission to create them.
It is not necessary to inform me of your use of my work, although it is appreciated. If you let me know when you are using my work, I may favorite your use of my work as well as watch or subscribe to your account.
My license falls under the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY). You can read more about this license, including the full legal text here .
I wish I did not have to explicitly state this, but in a world filled with lawsuits and intellectual property it is unfortunately necessary. I hope this will allow you to use and share my work without hesitation. However, if you do have any questions feel free to comment or send me a private message.
