Purchasing Abuse

Is Abuse Public Domain?

Is Abuse Public Domain?

 

The source code, artwork, and shareware levels (1-4) are public domain.  This means you are free to copy, sell, or modify it with no restrictions.  To get this point across you can do the following:

 

  1. You can write a book about games and include the data on CD with the book.  Some people have done this already.
  2. You can put the data on a FTP or web site without asking permission to do so.  People have done this many times as well.
  3. You can make your own game based off of the Abuse source and artwork and sell it as your own.  As noted below you can’t call the game Abuse or Abuse 2 because the name is trademarked.

Data that is not public domain:

1. The sound effects in Abuse are owned by Bobby Prince (contact http://bpmusic.com). Since we do not own them we cannot make them public domain, but you should not have a problem using them in most cases. Besides they are 8bit 11khz, games these days are expected to have higher quality.
2. The levels with commercial Abuse (4+) are not public domain. We did not make them public domain because some stores are still selling the game.

 

Can I use the name “Abuse”?

 

Crack.com and Abuse are trademarks held by Jonathan Clark and Dave Taylor.  If you want to make a commercial product named Abuse you will have to license it from us.  If you want to make a Abuse web-page or distribute a modified version of abuse for free then you don’t need to ask permission.  You can contact jonathan at http://jonathanclark.com/email
