Re: [libreoffice-marketing] DVD and Jewel case design


Hi :)

I think you need to put the original source code on the Cd. The GPL agreement
allows you and/or the library/school to make a small profit from the sale of the
Cds and to cover costs. I guess an ideal Cd would have the installers for all
the various platforms along with the source code but you might want to have
different Cds for Windows Mac and possibly Linux. As long as the source code is
on the Cd then you are complying with the GPL agreement. At least that is my
understanding from the previous discussion in here.

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] DVD and Jewel case design

We have spoken briefly a while ago about this, I was just wondering if we should
also be looking at the design again seeing as the final version of LibO is
approaching.

You can find a design proposal here from Jens Habermann:

And a short discussion on the german list here:

My opinion on the design is that it would be nice if it could be both in colour
and a b/w for burning on Lightscribe DVD burners. There are some nice
Lightscribe discs on the market that are green in colour.

I was also wondering, if the DVD/Case designs are available, am I then permitted
to burn and "Lightscribe" the disc to pass off to people wanting a copy of the
disc? Is this allowable? What would I need on the disc to adhere to the LibO
license?

I would be interested in passing off copies at my school and perhaps have the
library lend out copies for parents to install at home. Burning a nice looking
CD would make it look more professional.

If the burning of DVD/Jewel case designs are made easy, I could make
arrangements for almost 55 schools to start off with.

If we can make the process easy for people, we could include this in a LibO FAQ.

Cheers

Marc
