Subject: Re: [nvda] Clipspeak addon compatibility status
I'm not saying that this problem will occur regarding this add-on, I don't think it will, but the possible situation should be discussed.
I saw Joseph's message about needing to obtain permission before making the add-on compatible. This raises the question of providing, in some sort of agreement regarding add-ons, that under specified conditions an add-on will be considered to be in the public domain. An add-on that is abandoned but not in the public domain is in danger of not being updated and becoming useless or significantly degraded as NVDA or the program it works with changes.
Of course, the rights of those who provide add-ons for profit should be protected but it is, in my opinion, a serious violation of the spirit of NVDA that an add-on can be abandoned by its developer, and still not be able to be modified to keep it current.

I just looked at the website listing the compatibility of add-ons with python 3. It says clipspeak isn't compatible. Here's the link
