commercial applications and licensing

 [1/5] from: eric::ehrichweiss::com at: 19-Apr-2005 15:15


I've been reading and I'm trying to find what the current status is on selling our applications commercially. I found some threads from 2001 that were talking about $99/CPU licensing schemes or the like but I also kept hearing someone point out that a percentage of our sales might be required too. Can someone shed some light for me because I'm not about to purchase SDK AND have to pay royalties for my code because what I'm doing isn't likely to be used by more than a handful of people. Eric

No royalties. That applied to the encap, and not to the sdk. See http://www.rebol.com/docs/sdk/sdkintro.html#section-2 -- Graham Chiu http://www.compkarori.com/cerebrus http://www.compkarori.com/rebolml

Ok, now are you saying that if I encapsulate my program and distribute it I will have to license everything then? My code is definitely not going to allow other users to write scripts, so I'm under the impression that I'm clear according to the terms of the link you sent.. Am I correct on this? I'm still a long way off from purchasing so I have to get all these details straight... Thanx Eric Graham Chiu wrote:

Sounds correct to me too but none of us actually work for RT although some of us do work with RT. For definitive answers I recommend that you send an email to Cindy who is at rebol.com... HTH!! ~~Ammon ;~> On 4/19/05, Gregg Irwin <[greggirwin--mindspring--com]> wrote:
