As it is known, kolibrios is a fully open operating system, is it possible to take from it, for example, a mouse driver for your OS and whether you need to specify copyright (Kolibrios) or if the system is open, you can not specify? I want create own system,but using only fasm assembler :D i can get mouse driver from KolibriOS and don`t say official author?

Hi Mouse,

KolibriOS is a free open-source system with quite a liberal GPL license.
You can use any part of our code (with few exceptions mentioned in their special headers) for your own projects,
[by the way, any sort of your voluntary contribution to our project would be very much appreciated],

- but in any case you MUST accept the original authors' copyrights on any piece of code you borrowed.
It is a serious legal requirement (and also an obvious moral obligation).

Violating KolibriOS copyrights omitting original Author's name(s) and KolibriOS official weblinks will be easily traced and may be painfully prosecuted.
