Questions and Answers

A little more information about PHP-Fusion licensing system

Open Source as a Basic License for PHP-Fusion CMS

As an open source community, we will always develop our software free and open source as it is the foundation for all of our development. You can use PHP-Fusion CMS freely as you wish to, for any purposes, for as long as you abide to retain the copyright statement without editing any wording on it, including a link back to php-fusion.co.uk

What is an EPAL License and its intended purpose?

The EPAL - Enduser PHP-Fusion Addon License is a FREE commercial Addon license given as an incentive to all addon developers to raise addon standards and to enforce and protect the copyrights of our developers. EPAL is available for all developers that has a vendor account in our Marketplace, and will only be valid for any officially approved Commercial Addons that is being offered in the Marketplace.

The license that gives you real entitlement to your custom work

The Copyright Removal License (CRL) and Commercial Core License (CCL) revokes AGPL and the requirements of that license to share everything on your site. Additionally you are also allowed to remove our visual copyrights with this license in your site footer and use your own custom footer instead. Each licensed site is registered in our database and will have a generated certificate with a validated custom keys for each site.

How long the license is valid for use?

All of our licenses will never expire. Our CRL and CCL License is tied to a single domain and will never expire for its entire lifetime as long as the domain name for as long as it does not change its real owner. As such, our licenses are licensed as-is and will not be updated to include other persons or organizations and cannot be inherited nor being transferred to a 3rd party.

Open Source as Basic License

Our basic license is our guaranteed promise to continue pledging our work and foundation codes to be open source, and as such there will be no pro editions features on a seperate product. We believed that everyone deserved to have the same powerful, robust and intelligent system as we have created - and it will be so for all time.

Why Licensing?

PHP-Fusion CMS is free to download and use. However, in continuance of our effort to keep our software and services up to date, like many things, it does consume monetary, time and physical resources for its upkeep, therefore, we require a substantial funding to assist the growth of this project. Your purchase, empowers both you and us, or your customers all the freedom we deserved.

Why is the copyright so important to us?

PHP-Fusion has been privately funded by the MT since it's creation. In order to retain its existence and project feasibility, we need to convince everyone that the software has its audience. Overall usage statistics are gathered from the link backs to us, and it helps us to generate the web traffic the project require to ensure more development will come. If you removed the copyright, you will harm us directly and prevent us all our hard work to keep the project sustainable.
