  1. Although no one is obligated to share his/her Norman mods, I really don't see the point of keeping them private. The Normal rig is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License which means it can't be used unless attribution is made to the original creator. Mods can't be used commercially, nor can they be passed on to others unless under the same license.

    Someone took the time to create a solid rig which has helped and continues help countless people to learn about animation and rigging, and then was generous enough to set it free on the net. To keep Norman mods to ourselves goes against this spirit. It isn't exactly plagiarism, but I wouldn't say it's exactly honorably either.

    Norman came out of an academic setting, and when we use him, it should be in the spirit of the free exchange of knowledge. I think we should save our reptilian-brain, resource-guarding instincts for after graduation.
