Frequently Asked Questions
Note: An entity or organization may not have ever received more than $3,000,000 USD in capital from an outside source, such as private equity or venture capital, in order to be eligible for the Community License.
We loved what Microsoft did with the Visual Studio Community edition and decided to extend it to our products as well, including our new line of Bold Enterprise products. There is no catch, but we would really appreciate it if you could help spread the message through Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
There are two scenarios to be considered.
- Your organization owns the intellectual property (IP).
You deliver binaries to your customers, who have no claim on the IP itself. In this case, since you own the IP, redistribution to others is allowed under our standard redistribution grant. It is important that your customer has no claim on the IP. It is also important that the customer does not distribute or “white-label” the resulting application. They can only use it for internal purposes. If they distribute it, the second scenario applies.
- Your customer owns the IP or distributes the application built on your IP.
In this case, Syncfusion will allow you to give each client a single commercial binary license for free, provided that each entity or organization would itself qualify for the Community License. The only stipulation is that you provide us information on your customer in order for us to confirm their Community License eligibility to register a license in their name. In the event your customer does internal development or moves development to another organization, they will need to buy actual commercial licenses by contacting us. As long as your company is the only one working on the application and you continue to meet the requirements for the Community License, no further licenses need to be acquired. If you no longer meet the requirements, a Syncfusion account representative may reach out to discuss your paid licensing options.
The Community License can be used in open-source projects, but we require that you first contact us to register.
Government-related organizations (i.e., funded by tax dollars) are not eligible for Community Licenses. Governmental agencies that are not taxpayer-funded may be eligible to the Community License after signing a master license agreement. Contact us to initiate the request and to review if you are eligible.
Greatness—it’s one thing to say you have it, but it means more when others recognize it. Syncfusion is proud to hold the following industry awards.
