[REBOL] Re: About the website

From: depotcity:telus at: 2-Jun-2001 12:46

A license can't be changed AFTER the fact, right? Only on new versions. I mean, if I distributed 10,000 copies of older versions of core when "free" was the word, then what is one to do now? Tell them it's not free and now they have to pay? Are older versions of core/command, under the old licensing structure still free to distribute? They must be. I've never heard of a license changing AFTER the distribution. I don't think it's even an issue for the average user or the "hobbyist", but for those that are planning on distributing 100,000+ copies of their script. Were talking 10's of millions of dollars. (USD no less :) To determine the right licensing scheme must be tough, but trial and error is bad business practise.

> Ok. Some changes should be made on the website. The website products
info should include links to personal and commercial license information prior to ordering. Additionally, the price for /View/Pro commericial license is $99. I'm curious if someone just buys /View/Pro for commericial purposes its cheaper than those of us that bought /View/Pro and now an additional $99 for the commerical license. Am I reading this right? I know RT is trying to fix alot of this and I just want to help out by providing my feedback. Do others agree?
