I'm not sure I understand how a mod can violate the copyright so I would appreciate a clarification on the issue. Can we as users implement this mod as a JSGME or do we have to go into the WOFF code and make some changes to make it work.
So do I. I do not understand it either. I am not able to answer your question. Maybe ODB Software guys?
From my point of view - we can implement this mod for WOFF2 as JSGME without any problem, but for WOFF3 we need assistance/approval of OBD
Regarding the red text above, I can attest that many mods have been made for WOFF3 and been hosted on the official WOFF site without any specific approval process, so I am not sure I understand why your mod is any different. Actually all mods that are hosted on the WOFF official site have readme files that specifically identify the following disclaimer:
OBD offer NO SUPPORT for this MOD AT ALL - Use at your own risk.
If you have problems with WOFF after using this mod OBD will ask you to deactivate it before offering any support.
Note: Remember it is advised to deactivate all your mods before upgrading to the latest WOFF Patch or release
If a mod can in some way violate a WOFF3 copyright, It would be nice to know how to avoid such a situation and where the limits of modding lie. I would not want to violate any copyrights, as I have a great deal of respect for OBD.
