also ich werde für unser http://opencu.org.uk project das
untenbeschriebene lizenz modell von Funambol anwenden ,
gibt es da irgentwelche bedenken eurerseits ?
Funambol has two versions of its software: the open source Community
Edition and the commercial Carrier Edition.
The editions share a body of source code. This dual-license strategy
is now common with commercial open source companies.
Funambol Community Edition uses the GNU Affero General Public License
v3 (AGPLv3) open source license that lets you offer your software to
all who wish to use, modify and distribute it freely. The AGPLv3 open
source license allows you to use Community Edition at no charge under
the condition that if you use Funambol code in an application that you
distribute, the complete source code for your application must be
available and freely redistributable under reasonable conditions. With
this license, you can download, inspect, develop and test Funambol
code. Many organizations do this before they contact us regarding a
In layman's terms, Community Edition can be freely used for many
purposes. The most notable exception is if you you use the software as
part of an Internet or network-based service, you must make all of the
related code available to the community. Alternatively, if you do not
wish to share your code, you can purchase a commercial license from
Funambol that removes this requirement. For more information, please
contact Funambol Sales.
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
certainly don't reflect those of any other entity (legal or otherwise).
Please note that according to the German law on data retention,
information on every electronic information exchange with me is
retained for a period of six months.
