I have a project for undergraduate thesis. Then, I found this Chapter VBI-6. Hand and Finger Detection. In the Downloads section, there's code that we can download and launched. I want to use it and have to modify or tweak it to suit my project. The problem is that, I don't know whether it's allowed or not to make a modification to the code presented. Inside, I found this sentences:
If you use this code, please mention my name, and include a link to the website.
By "use", may I tweak the code as long as I refer to the coder? I'm confused because I found nothing about its license inside the code, like, GNU-GPL or MIT...
I'm so sorry if my question is wrong. If so, please tell why and maybe where I can ask it.
