So I have recently found some great art I wish to use. Most of it is under CC0 public domain license and it seems very promising and safe to use that for commercial use in a game production.
Some other is under the CC BY license and while it seems it only require one to credit the designer/author I am still in doubt.
While I know legal advise is great(as well as wise to seek) I would like to hear about others experience with using the CC BY licensed art in commercial works or for small commercial indie projects. The thing is that I have found icons that I wish to edit(I see this as adapt to my own style) and then use it in my game and then credit the creator as CC BY dictates.
But is that all that needs to be done in order to be "safe"?.
In other words what is the con by using art under the CC BY for a small commercial game developer? I mean it seems too perfect to be true )
Any input will be appreciated.
Note: I did do a lot of search around here and on the net but what I found was just this website(http://creativecommons.org/) and some small talk on other websites. I see this site as having a lot of wise people on the board and therefore ask these questions here before taking further actions that will secure a healthy and stabel development of my game.
