RE: Etiquette Question Concerning Maps
@Cernel In general everything has copyright to if unless explicitly stated otherwise, the same applies for maps and the engine code.
GitHub is a platform for open source code, and therefore most of the projects on the platform use open source licenses.
TripleA for instance is licensed under GPLv3 or later, which means that anyone can use the code as long as they license their modifications under the GPL as well.
There are other licenses like MIT which basically allow everyone to do everything with the code.
Anything without an explicit license is protected by copyright.
Because the maps don't really use an official licence they should really be treated as protected by copyright, so at least asking is really a thing one should do in this case.
Are you going to get sued for copying the map? Probably not, but when the original creater really wants to make use of their rights they could and asking is always a nice proof that you respect other people's rights.
