Clarification of commercial licensing requirements #418
I'm not sure how to apply this to my own situation, which is that I have some code I'm working on that has a permissive license (Apache 2) and is currently nothing more than a hobby project, but the copyright is held by a commercial entity and I have plans for it to be used commercially at some point. Do I need a commercial license because I have assigned copyright to a commercial entity? If I don't need a commercial license and I work on this for a while and begin to use the project commercially in some way, is it only when deployed to a production environment that a license is required?
I really like your work and want to be able to make use of it - but I want to make sure I'm doing what's required and I'm just not clear on what I need to do.
What bits of Logary are you using? If it's the Facade, it's licensed separately from the Logary proper library, which is separate from Rutta in its license. I don't think what other the other code's license is, matters that much. The intention is not so much about copyright, but about using the library proper in commercial software.
I actually launched a new pricing calculator today!
Thank you! I hope Logary can help your software become more successful :)
I plan to use the façade and library backend to write to console + log file sinks for the forseeable future. I could possibly imagine using the prometheus bits, but probably not Rutta, at least not in the near term.
+1 for a calculator. That does help clear things up a bit.
The façade is forever free of charge, so no worries there.
The file target requires the facade adapter + logary, so that's what you'd pay for in production then. The facade has a literate console output built in.
I'm closing this issue; feel free to ask if you have more questions!
