Not-For-Profit Licence for Ruby-Spreadsheet

Filed under: Licence, Not For Profit, Release, Ruby, Spreadsheet — Tags: , — zdavatz @ 5:55 pm

Today we received an Email from AtomicObject regarding a free NON-GPLv3 licence for their Non-For-Profit Project SMEToolkit – that code is not OpenSource other code from AtomicObject obviously is OSS. After our first reaction of a flat denial to do so, we had some internal discussions and would be willing to provide AtomicObject with a licence for SMEToolkit under the following circumstances (and maybe more to come):

1. Where will we be credited for our work? Where in the Website and where in the source code? The term to mention would be “ywesee – the Ruby Spreadsheet” that of course would have to be linked i.e. to some new Blog entry on this Blog. Maybe even with this entry.

2. Where, in which countries, and on how many servers do you and will you run http://www.smetoolkit.org/smetoolkit/en?

3. What are the reasons why http://www.smetoolkit.org/ can not be licensed under GPLv3? We would like to state those reasons in the free license.

4. We could only grant our licence for this specific project. Other projects and clients of AtomicObject would not be allowed to use Ruby Spreadsheet under the possibly given licence.

5. We are willing to do this because we want you to see how easy it is to print a spreadsheet with our Software and of course because we want to sell additional licences to you ;) for your other NON GPLv3 clients.

Lets see how this turns out.
