  2. Fuzzy license information[ Go to top ]

    You are allowed to use GPL'd code in closed source inhouse projects without 'opening' your code. Only(!) when you distribute your application (that uses GPL'd code) GPL forces you to distribute your code under GPL too. Personally I don't like "dual" licenses.
  3. But if you want to sell it you can obtain a commercial license. What is wrong with that?

    Nothing, of course. Just provide clear an unambiguous license information, not something like: http://www.jpedal.org/licences.php
  5. What is unclear? Its under a GPL license or a commercial license like a lot of programs such as MySQL. Is their page clear?
  6. What is unclear?
    http://www.jpedal.org/licences.php - "For Individuals and small projects" is irrelevant. - "For GPL Projects" is misleading.
  7. - "For Individuals and small projects" is irrelevant. A lot of people ask for clarification on this one. - "For GPL Projects" is misleading. It was actually based on http://www.mysql.com/company/legal/licensing/ to try and make the licensing clear. If youactually say what you think is 'misleading' (which is a fairly strong word to use) we can make it clearer. I presume you are just trolling.
