Hello people,

I am currently a University student doing some academic research on Games Engines/ Middleware. Now whilst there is loads of information out there about specific engines, I'm currently looking for some information on the issues surrounding the licensing of the middleware/engine. However, I am finding it particularly hard to find any information on what the current issues and problems relating to licensing are.

If anyone has any information or useful links to help out, that would be great.

Thanks for your time.

The main issues are the cost of licensing the engine, and getting good support (answers to technical questions about using the engine). Is that the kind of information you're looking for? (By the way, this didn't belong in Production/Management, so I moved it to Business.)

Sorry I wasn't sure which section to put it in, so thanks for moving it.

Yes, that is the type of information I am looking for but with specifics to go with it too. So examples and more things which are an issue when it comes to licensing.

Thanks for the reply though.

Check out gdmag.com and gamasutra.com - look for articles on engine usage and look for project postmortems. You'll need to do a lot of reading.
