LDD questions

Re: LDD questions
Hey Daniel,

the .lif files are kind of a container format.

format, first created (mostly) for the Amiga personal computer. It has chunks
and chunk headers that are very similiar to IFF. (LIF = LEGO Interchange Format,
would be my guess at the meaning, as well).

I agree with this quote. LEGO used chunks like 0001 and 0002 (...).

There was a discussion (among others) on eurobicks about the legality of extracting and sharing the content of the .lif-files. I am not a jurist nor is my english that good, that I got the result of this discussions.

Appropriating Lego’s data contained within such file formats is quite another – that data (the .lif contents) certainly is subject to plain old copyright. You would require written permission to reproduce it. Converting it to another format is merely a ‘derived work’ and permission is still required.

Once, Philo described a way to take a 3d screenshots of a ldd model. In the resulting .3dxml files the decorations are available too. But they are in a strange format. I did not had a closer look on them, yet...
