All my SAM stuff may be freely downloaded and used.
Not entirely sure as to the copyright on Sophistry, since I programmed it but it was a port from the Speccy version. As far as I’m concerned, have it!
From the B-DOS Information file on disc:
The B-DOS code and B-DOS information are FREEWARE. This is a fully functional DOS and there are no silly restrictions whatsoever. Please pass it on to other SAM users.
I’m finding myself linking more and more entries to the Scrapbook so I thought I’d check that that was OK with you in the first instance.
The second thing I’d like to ask is how I link to the pages, if they are still updated then I can just link a URL but if they are effectively static now would you object to me taking the content and reformatting it on worldofsam.org with a ‘Taken from the scrapbook’ link at the bottom?
To be honest, I’m unlikely to make any major updates, so copy if you prefer - if you do link could you use Sam Coupé Scrapbook link though, incase I move them again.
From the README.64C on the disc:
“Mouse Driver v2.0 is Public Domain software and may, as such, be used and copied freely. You may also use it in this form for commercial software, provided appropriate credit is given.”
“Our first major program was the game “EGGBuM” for the Sam. This was freely distributable, and was included on the popular Sam disk magazine “Fred”. A PC version, with additional features, is currently being written.”
All my work is now, as it was then Public Domain.
From the masses for the masses.
From Colin MacDonald:
In case it helps, I’ll certainly not complain about anything I still hold
copyright to going up - although all the Fred magazines are already up,
there were some other mags I got in the end (Enceladus, SCPDU, Outlet), and
of course, all the commercial software - although I should point out that
certainly the copyright to the code of those will have reverted to
programmers long ago, but design, art, audio and other rights to most of the
titles probably still rest with me.

Chris writes on his website:
I’m releasing SAM DEFENDER as freeware. The copyright remains mine and the game must not be sold for profit or gain. I do not object to it appearing in shareware libraries or on SAM software compilation disks. I have no objection to others carrying the disk images as supplied on this site on their own site, providing nothing is added or taken away without permission.
