Hey there,
MasterPhW here, crew member of the German AEP-Emu.
We are reporting about every new release of your great plugin and really enjoy the progress of your plugin.
But one user of our community made a comment, that let us thinking over your project.
According to the user, the project uses some licensed libraries like FreeType, GLee und Ogg which aren't stated in your docs, yet.
To save you some work, here are the derrivated license information:
FreeType:

irrevocable right and license to use, execute, perform, compile,
display, copy, create derivative works of, distribute and

authorize others to exercise some or all of the rights granted
herein, subject to the following conditions:

Waiver — Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
Public Domain — Where the work or any of its elements is in the public domain under applicable law, that status is in no way affected by the license.
Other Rights — In no way are any of the following rights affected by the license:
Your fair dealing or fair use rights, or other applicable copyright exceptions and limitations;
The author's moral rights;
Rights other persons may have either in the work itself or in how the work is used, such as publicity or privacy rights.
Notice — For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page.

The last thing I would really prefer, is that you'll link to the latest release here on the board, without the relinking to the emu russia plugin page, because we would deal with copyright issues in Germany to link to the main page with rom downloads
Awaiting comments.
And keep up, the great work.
Regards the Master

You've provided wrong link to OGG license.
AFAIU, plugin uses libogg, libvorbis and libtheora, which are provided under following license:

See http://svn.xiph.org/trunk/theora/COPYING, http://svn.xiph.org/trunk/vorbis/COPYING , http://svn.xiph.org/trunk/ogg/COPYING

It's also sufficient to just include licenses for all libs (xiph's, glee and freetype) in docs folder.

As for download links, as far as i know, emu-russia is primary place for edgbla releases, and it forbids hot-linking for files. Why don't you just re-upload it somewhere, providing link to these forums?

Thanks for the right link to the ogg license.
AEP emu is also hosting the plugin, no problem, but we are also linking to the authors site (this board) and it only is linking to the plugin pages of emurussia.
It would be easier for new user, who just follow the link to have the new release on top of the forum for example.

I doubt that. You need to register in our forum to download attachments and on our site you have a direct link to files from the index page. Much easier to download for everyone. You can consider Emu-Russia as authors site and this forum is just a way to communicate with users. So just link to corresponding plugin page on our site.
