I had the need to edit one of the Mel command library functions: MakeCurveDynamicHairs, because I needed some kind of return value to be able to script rigs with dynamic curves: easy as adding a couple of rows of code.
To overcome conflicts, I renamed the header of the function. I found the final code very useful and I would like to share it to the community by publishing it :hmm: on my blog, but before moving on, I want to know if I might have issues because the copyright.
The header of the code states:

As I understand, seems like I can edit the code for my purpose but I can't of course resell it (and I don't want to :) ). But what about sharing it?
