Redactor's license doubt1 user found helpful
What about addons (free and commercial) which use TinyMCE? If a developer wants to develop on Redactor.... should that guy buy a Redactor License?
Will be TinyMCE removed from Concrete5?
Thanks in advance.

features should do that... Am I wrong?
(Please, please,... nooooooooo)
But if you're using the core API, then that would be acceptable use under the licence that the core team has.
concrete5 is open-source software so that would require the OEM license which costs $399.
This could end badly if it is one of their standard licences.
"is limited to one year from the date of purchase" <- If concrete5 team don't renew?
"no special terms or conditions, UNTIL (my emphasis) Redactor is properly "linked" in your software" <- Don't have to pay now, but when addon installed that uses it?
"It is proprietary commercial copyrighted software and we do not allow it's distribution under any open-source licenses. Think about Redactor as if it was a paid proprietary extension for your project." <- Better include the price of a licence in your quotes then.
Before this thread keeps popping up again and again. I'll get an official word about Redactor with these licensing issues and post back here this week.
We contacted the team behind redactor, expressed the details of our situation, and got them to grant us a special license that suits our needs. As long as we don't go pack up redactor and sell it on its own, I'm confident they will be happy with concrete5's use. From the email thread:
Our proposal is pretty simple: we grant you an unlimited non-yearly perpetual OEM License for a charge of a 3-year fee. So you'll be able to use Redactor for your purposes regardless of our situation, fees and other circumstances. Let me know if it is ok, and I'll modify your license and send you an invoice for this one-time fee of $1197.
