I am making a small freeware game, and I found freesound.org to be a wonderful source of sound effects to use in the project. I plan for this game to be downloadable for free when it is finished.
My question is along the lines of, is it safe to use the sounds if I credit the uploaders either with a credits screen in the game listing sound attribution, or with the same information in a text file included with the .exe? Or both? The sounds I plan to use make use of the Creative Commons Attribution license and the Creative Commons 0 license.
I don't want to disrespect the creators of the sounds and I don't want into get in trouble after I release the game for download to the public. I do NOT plan to sell the game. Can anyone set me straight?
Best practice: credit the sounds in the best way you can and don't worry...!
People want to be credited but aren't very picky to HOW they are credited.
Thanks! I'll keep that in mind.
