  • Take a look at this FAQ: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/kinectsdk/docs/KinectforWindowsSDK_FAQ.pdf

    It covers a couple of licensing issues. The closest one I could find to your scenario is #16:

    16. Can I put a video of my application on the Web if the Web site displays ads? Can I blog about my application and the beta SDK if my blog site is supported by advertising?
    Yes, as long as you are not receiving a fee on the basis of the application or the beta SDK. We want you to showcase your work!

    But this only specifically mentions a blog receiving income from advertising, not from donations, so I think you should consult a lawyer about your scenario. Also be sure to read question/answer 8 in same FAQ (Can I share applications/demos/experiments that I have created using the beta SDK?) so you are sure to share your application in the right way.
