Hi Alessandro, Up until now I believe the situation has been that it's free for non-commercial use but if it's to be used commercially a licence has to be bought for every computer it is running on. However, Carl Sassenrath recently made this post to the list... To quote... ---8<--- I think it's time to change the licensing for REBOL/Core and REBOL/View. What do you think? Here's what I'm thinking: Core and View would be free for use and redistribution for commercial and noncommercial use; however, if more than five copies are in use at a single company, then purchasing would be required. Exception would be the use of REBOL for any educational purposes. This mean you can use REBOL for creating and selling your programs, for in-house servers, for small company clients, and for use in consulting solutions. ---8<--- And that, as far as I know, is where things currently stand. My guess would be that any change to their licences would coincide with the release of their next versions, (due out real soon now - maybe:), so the new licences could be included within them. -- Carl Read -- To unsubscribe from this list, please send an email to [rebol-request--rebol--com] with unsubscribe" in the
