the license basicly looks compatible, see "Public Logging". Thats what someone usually expects in public irc-like chat.
Regular chat is public domain. To post anything that already has a different license (eg quote from a paper, or a copyrighted image) you need to have the permission to spread it in public, this grants everyone in public the implicit sublicense to hear it. The license that Discord gets is pretty much the same as this implicit license, just they have to make it explicit because Discord channels are not necessarily public (they can be invite-only for example). Note that they cannot sell this content - they have a right to sublicense it (which means they can just spread it further - in practice, since the sublicense can be given "in connection with operating and providing the Service", this means they get the ability to display your messages to the people in your discord room) but cannot charge any money for it because it's "royalty-free".smoth wrote:is that the license of said content?sprunk wrote:stuff you say in a public place is automatically public domain.

Melbot has been active for like 10 years. #sy and #moddev have been publicly accessibly by a single click to anyone on the internet for a decade at least. This site used to even link to a 1 click #sy irc joiner thing (maybe it still does via one of the subdomains?).dansan wrote:I don't want my conversations to be archived by anyone else, than those I have them with.
