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? -- Graham Chiu
