* By German law, broadcasters, including video creators and streamers on YouTube, Twitch & Co., who earn money with their videos (e.g. enabled monatisation or any other "partner programme") are affected by this. If you want to allow the usage of your add-on, add a notice to your license text that presenting your add-on in videos is not "commercial use" but advertising in your view.


Errors excepted, recourse to the courts is not permitted.
