Here's another. My brother who works for an insurance
company had a need to automate the downloading of images
from an image server.
He wondered if it could be done with Rebol, and I responded
to the challenge with a View applet.
His company thought it was neat, and gave him $49 to
purchase a View/Pro license which he now has, but in his own
name, and not the company's. They also paid for a
Rebol/command license when I thought it could do some other
stuff - which it turns out didn't work out due to bugs with
the ODBC interface.
Do I tell him he really needs a $99 license as well to use
this applet at work?
And, here's another scenario.
Someone writes a killer View application, and releases it as
freeware. Several employees of a small company find it
useful. Do they all need to pay for a commercial license?
