License

The frePPLe software has dual licensing, which means:

  • You can use the Community Edition software completely free under the GNU Affero General Public License.
    In short, the AGPL license is a strong copyleft license. You are allowed to copy, use and modify the source code as long as any derived product remains AGPL-compatible open source : “what is open source must remain open source”.
    You can thus not make a proprietary commercial product using frePPLe.
    This also applies to users who interact with frePPLe over a network: they must be able receive the source code.
  • The frePPLe Enterprise Edition is distributed under a proprietary commercial license.
    The source code of the extensions is not redistributed.
  • You can also purchase a commercial OEM license from frePPLe bvba if you do not wish to be bound by the terms of the AGPL.
    With this license you have the right to create frePPle-based products and services that can remain proprietary and protected.
