@rainwarrior I just want my hacker-typer thing to look slightly more authentic
@mogwai_poet So you want to use the visual representation of some GPL source code as a thematic element, without it actually being executed in any way?
For GPL I think it is against the spirit of it, but it's probably grey enough to give you a good angle to argue it in court, i.e. good chance you could "get away with it".
"This is a legal question, which ultimately judges will decide."
I think this territory is deliberately vague to give the FSF a chance to argue that it applies as aggressively as they can. This is also part of why I think what you're proposing breaks the GPL in spirit. This should be covered by their goal to extend Copyleft as far as it can by this license.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
