I have a blog and want to write for my users explaining how to use spredsheet and using it on libreoffice calc. I will write step by step way to do each operation. I will need to show screenshots from my laptop of libreoffice calc. On net i have find many a times that i can't use those screenshots because they might be copyright voilation. I have also not find any document on your site explaning how to use screenshot of your libreoffce calc product. So i am asking you whether i can do that or not? I need only 6-7 sccreenshots in total. I hope you will reply soon.

No no they said about programs and apps in general, they don't name libreoffice in particular but only said using screenshots of ingame action, program / app or operating system is considred copyright voilation as the content / program / os is the property of respective company. And same statemnet has been found on many website and blogs even quora when i search for the term " is using screenshots of excel / spredsheet application copyright" on google. gravatar ( 2018-07-15 15:47:44 +0200 )edit
