[REBOL] How does the Rebol licensing work exactly?

From: gedb01:y:ahoo at: 30-Oct-2003 9:29

Could somebody just clarify Rebol licensing for me. My understanding is that Rebol/Core is free (as in beer). I can use it for whatever I like, commercial or not. Is this correct? Rebol/View, on the other hand, is free for non-commercial use. What exactly is commercial use. Does this mean software for sale, or any use in a commercial environment. To give a concrete example. Say I want to create a bug tracking databsae for internal use by myself and the other members of my team. If i just use Rebol/Core as a CGI server, with the UI made up of html forms only then that is no problem. Could I then sell my database for profit without paying royalties? If I then replace the browser with a Rebol/View front end, what now? Can I continue to use the bug database internally, but I cannot sell it without purchasing the SDK?
