Hello @jkmaddur,

I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking, why you would need copyright permission for your project, or what your ID numbers are in reference to. Can you please explain a little bit more about what you need help with?

I just want to clarify that shall i have to take permission from Github/Adafruit for the use of their Adafruir_SSD1306.h library for one time presentation.Please clarify.

It sounds like what you want is copyright permission to use a particular library that Adafruit publishes on GitHub?

If my understanding is correct, then I have some clarifications.

  • GitHub doesn’t have any copyright claim on the library you mention since it was published by Adafruit
  • We can’t give legal advice with regard to copyright (or any other legal matter)

If you’re asking about a library that you found in a repository on GitHub, you’ll want to look for a file that is named LICENSE. It should spell out what legal obligations you have when using that library. Again, we can’t answer any questions about the license or give legal advice, for that you should contact your own legal counsel.

If you want to contact the maintainers of a piece of software that you found in a repository on GitHub, the best way to contact the maintainers of that software is to:

  1. Check the README for instructions on how to operate the software, pointers to documentation or troubleshooting info
  2. Check the SUPPORT file, if one exists
  3. Check the CONTRIBUTING guide, if one exists

All of these documents can be found, if they exist, in the repository where you found the software itself.

I hope that helps! Let us know if you have more questions.

I can’t clarify that for you since it would be giving legal advice and we aren’t allowed to give legal advice. You should contact your own legal counsel to get more clarification.
