Volumio License

Issue #35 on Github, github.com/volumio/Volumio2/issues/35 is about choosing a license. I could dig into that. I got some lawyers in the company that can help and I have some knowledge about that myself. We can always change, but I guess we need to decide first on what we want with the project. We already chose to open source it.

Thanks for the help. I wanted also the other devs to say their opinion on that…
I was about to choose GPLv3 or MIT… Also apache could be a good licence… what do you think on that?

I’m going to take a deeper look at it :slight_smile:


I would like to know the following;

  1. Are we allowing people to make money off the Volumio distribution? (like selling a package including a media distro).
  2. If yes,… do we allow at certain point to let them “rebrand” it without any notice to Volumio?
  3. Do we allow to let someone modify our software and not open source it? (so close source it, and distribute it commercially, like a follow up on question 2)
