Home Forums Other What license do I need for a CSS framework? Re: What license do I need for a CSS framework?


You misunderstood. I stated that law is complicated and difficult to understand. Not individual licenses.

After further research and allegedly coming from the copyright office (US) themselves after asking them multiple times, CSS cannot be copyrighted outside of Trade Dress.

So writing a disclaimer not to remove the developers’ names seems to be invalid. But then some would argue that piece of text is subject to copyright. Sure, the text itself could be but not the CSS inside it.

Anyway, that’s just what I’ve understood from research including lawsuits.
