Licensing - how does this apply to my service?

Hi

It says the use of the API is under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. I’m building a realtime multiplayer internet quiz game, and one source of questions I am hoping to be opentdb. However I’m not sure how I can apply the ShareAlike license to my project because it’s a service i’ll be hosting rather than a specific body of code/software that would actually be downloaded.

I realize I probably haven’t described this very well at all but I’m completely new to the whole license thing in the first place so sorry in advance. :slight_smile:

Could anyone advise on this? Thanks.

We are currently in the process of drafting up a new terms of service that will cover this.

You are required to attribute Open Trivia Database and required to license your service under the same license.

Thank you for your reply. I understand the first part, I will definitely attribute :slight_smile:

I’m just not sure what it means to release my service under the license. Does it mean I have to release all the source code for my game client and game server online, and allow anyone to use it? Or does it just mean I should create documentation to show others how to make their own clients to connect to my game service?

Thank you
