Commercial vs. Proprietary

Post by HarryB » Wed Jun 27, 2007 4:57 pm

The constant back-and-forth about the terms "Commercial" and "Proprietary" is getting tiresome (at least to me).  Maybe something like this might say more than the at least 1000 words already expended on the subject.

disclaimer:  I am not saying the information contained at the link I referenced above is right, wrong, or indifferent, just an example of a simple way to convey information.  I'm not looking to start a debate here with those who are authorized to reply to this post.

Good point...there's a lot of variations floating around...shareware, public domain, unlicensed, postcardware, and more that I can't remember right now. 

They (aka me) hereby grant anyone, anywhere the right to have their way with the subject image, with no need to consult a lawyer or  interpret arcane and ambiguous licensing terms and conditions of any sort!
