Rules question - Is it legal for people to share libraries?

Random stuff about the contest, posts that don't fit in the other forums.

Rules question - Is it legal for people to share libraries?

Postby gkisel » Wed Sep 08, 2010 6:37 pm

For example, if I have some handy functions in my PlanetWars.java file that aren't in the starter pack, is it legal to share that PlanetWars.java file with other people, as long as the bots themselves are unique (and maintained by different people), or does that violate "You can only have one account. If you have effective control over more than one account, even if the accounts are all nominally owned by other people, you will be disqualified."?

I assume code sharing to some degree must be legal since it'll happen with the code in the starter packs, but it's not clear at what point it becomes a problem.

I shared a lot of code in the last contest. I did not share anything critical to my AI, but I shared a ton of convenience functions.

I don't think that's a problem.

A rule on multiple accounts has nothing to do with code sharing. I'm guessing that rule is to keep people from coding bots that always loose to their real bot, thus shoving themselves up the rankings.

Yep, that's correct, you can have your bot open source if you want to. But that's a pretty bad idea if you actually care to win this.
