Why not just have Stardock ASK? Tell them what you are going to be doing.. lol ask.. I get.. I dont see why not
While you're waiting, you might want to read an interesting post over at the Rainmeter forum: http://www.rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=453
I really don't understand SO much of what's involved in this weather widget fiasco. I don't make weather widgets myself, but I HAVE made a few Rainmeter weather widgets for personal use (I don't understand the creation DesktopX -- Rainmeter seems a little easier to me, because it's like Rainlendar -- some pngs and an .ini file).
From reading the Rainmeter forum, I see that AccuWeather (which Stardock uses in their own MyColors gadgets) seems to have just gifted Rainmeter skinners with the authority to use their weather information along with access to official icons and logo (which isn't as strict as what the readers of this thread are led to believe are the terms of service for TWC's).
Up until this point, I thought it would make sense if Stardock purchased a license to the the rights to use TWC, or extended their license with AccuWeather to be used as script for (their product) DesktopX...something that in my mind made fiscal sense -- Stardock could sell more DesktopX programs if they provided free access to weather feeds along with their product. I thought Stardock was just being very conservative in these tough financial times, by not extending this generosity of purchasing the rights to either TWC or extending AccuWeather access to those who own DesktopX. So you can imagine my surprise to read on Rainmeter that AccuWeather is providing this access to Rainmeter for free AND advertising Rainmeter at AccuWeather's site!
Why hasn't Stardock followed the same route as Rainmeter? This just doesn't make any sense to me.
