    Also note that Paizo has two more licenses that work in tandem with the OGL, the Compatibility License which is directly for commercial entities, and the Community Use Policy which lets you largely use anything that Paizo publishes in your work as long as it's a) freely distributed and b) you are not a commercial entity.

    PCGen uses the Community Use Policy which lets us use anything in the Approved Product list.

    Be very careful with this statement as the community use policy does not allow you to "largely use anything that Paizo publishes" - you can't grab sections of descriptive text from Paizo products, you can only use approved artwork/map (which is a very small subset of the artwork/maps included in a Paizo product), you can't change/edit those approved images/maps, etc.. It's a nice community policy that lets you use proper names, location names, deity names, approved artwork, etc. in your own products, it does not allow sections of the product to be used cart blanche.
