Commercial usage[edit]

I've been trying to find anywhere that points towards JAMWiki being available for commercial use. I know a firm that has been charging for JAMWiki to install and maintain. I am unsure on what is allowed and what isnt. The system does not indicate anything regarding JAMWiki and only noticed it when looking through the logs once, as there were no references to JAMWiki on the wiki frontend itself

JAMWiki is licensed under the LGPL license - the terms of that license are at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/lgpl.html, and a summary version is available at https://cajo.dev.java.net/license.html. Provided a company is following the terms of that license then they are welcome to charge for and redistribute the code. If the company in question has modified the code and not made those modifications available to download freely then that would be a concern. Similarly, if they have removed attributions that might also be a concern. I know that there are a number of products out there that have chosen to integrate JAMWiki into their code and most do so in full compliance with the license, but if some of them are violating license terms it would be good to know about it so that I could get in touch with them. Thanks for the info! -- Ryan • (comments) • 31-Mar-2009 08:14 PDT
