So I have spent a lot of time looking around on the net for an answer to how we can legally and commercially make use of the default fonts, bruches and patterns included in a freshly installed Gimp.
And while I can find plenty of GPL license texts and praises of how Gimp the very software itself is allowed to use for commercial use even without the GPL agreement I cannot find any mention of the default fonts, brushes and patterns included in Gimp.
How do a Gimp user stand legally when using Gimp with default fonts, brushes and patterns?
Are they owned by others or are they a part of the software package Gimp and the GPL?
Can we freely use them commercially to create logos and art, still keep our copyright for our games we create?
Also another question comes to my mind after reading the Attribution 3.0 Unported license. Is it really just so easy to credit someone in the project somewhere and then use resources under the Attribution 3.0 Unported licensed patterns for commercial use?
I have not found any readme.txt file saying anything in my default Gimp installation and I need to know this in order to make a proper decision whether I shall keep on using my wonderful Gimp or shed out pure cash for something else like it.
Any helpful and insightful answers or links are very much welcomed
