Okay, I checked out the old thread and his download file (form here: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/showthread.php/2503)

And I see no license ever posted by that author, or permission to redistribute.

So, did you contact keptin to get permission?

Over a year ago he made this post: http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/showthread.php/2503-v0-6-BrickMod?p=184729&viewfull=1#post184729

He definitely was looking for someone to take over, but it clearly states you do need to contact him for permission to take over.

You can't just take his mod and apply your own license to it. If you do get permission, it might not be a bad idea to throw some credit back to the original author as well.

Unrelated note: you should also put a copy of your license in your download (once its compliant)

My apologies upfront for going about this incorrectly. I'm sorta new to the process and just copied a license to satisfy the forum rules, it wasn't my intention to take any credit for the original work. That said, I actually don't remember seeing that post by keptin, I found the mod in google posted on a different site. But I will contact him about it though, it's only right that I do.

Wow, this is just... so SO wrong. :)

(I'm downloading it!)

(I don't see anything about lego kerbals to go with it. That would be kinda neat... but wrong!)

I saw this and had to take a double take. This made me seriously laugh! Right on. Hope Keptin is around to respond to you on using it. Make sure to not step on any of the pieces....

I actually tried! I managed to make the Kerbals on the starting screen yellow with "lego-ish" eyebrows, but I can't change the models. I don't think we are permitted to edit those files.

Hey folks, I'm releasing Brickmod with a Creative Commons by-nc-sa license and officially giving Roboto permission to take up the Brickmod torch and carry on for all of brickkind!

Godspeed!

i cant believe how perfect the thought of building with legos in KSP goes with the general theme of the game

No, this cannot be allowed to exist! This level of awesomeness is beyond the capabilities of KSP alpha version!

XD XD XD XD

This is LDD all over again now in KSP!

Oops, I gave you the older version of the license, the 3.0 link is in keptin's post now, you should probably use that one.

And let me know if you need any help. :)

If the craft crashes, is there a sound of the plastic bricks smashing? :D

My 5 and 6 year old just had a lively debate on how a Kerbal gets inside a pod with no doors, then they went and actually built some rockets with their Legos.

I've always been describing KSP as "Lego rockets that blow up", now it can literally be that! :)

You Dad's out there can concur, the love of Lego's drops a few notches when you step on one at 6AM with a hangover :D

Okay I don't want to cause any problems here, but I have to ask this question. Did you get permission from LEGO to develop this mod? I ask this not to cause a problem, but because the LEGO is a copyrighted brand and without the proper permissions from the makers of LEGO, you could run into a whole heap of legal problems. I'm not totally familiar with the legal details of using copyrighted work in a mod like this and for all I know it might not be a problem, but I would strongly recommend contacting the LEGO and explain what you are doing and find out if it's a problem or not. Else contact Squad about this mod and ask their legal department what the general rules are about something like this.

You really had to bump a 3 month old post to ask about legal stuff ?

No, I'm afraid I don't work for LEGO, and I found this thread after finding a review on it on youtube. My advice still stands though. But, hey, don't trust me, do a search on google and see for yourself. I'm sure there are hundreds of listings of copyright lawsuits that would show one way or the other.
