Open Source License
opentaps is released under a dual open source/commercial licensing model, similar to that used by MySQL, JBoss, Asterisk, and many other open source projects. It is available as free software under either GNU Affero GPL v3 for opentaps 1.4 and later or the Honest Public License (HPL) for earlier versions. These licenses allow you to use, modify, and re-distribute the source code of the software, but it also may require that you publish your own modifications, extensions, or customizations.
The opentaps commercial license allows you to take advantage of all the features of opentaps without the obligations of the open source licenses. End users can still access and modify the source code for your own organization. Service providers and independent software vendors can incorporate opentaps into a hosted on-demand offering or commercial product and distribute them to end users under the opentaps commercial license. Commercial licenses are included with the opentaps Professional Edition along with professional support for opentaps.
opentaps Partners can purchase opentaps commercial licenses for their clients and discount rates.
Software vendors and on-demand service providers can purchase commercial licenses in bulk at significant discounts to the pricing listed above. For additional details, please contact Open Source Strategies.
