小心踩到版權陷阱

日前看到一個還不錯的Flash元件
CU3ER
當時下載 0.9.2版的來用
他的版權聲明(License)
http://www.progressivered.com/cu3er/docs/index.html

You may use CU3ER in personal and / or commercial projects.

You may implement CU3ER in an unlimited number of websites and offline presentations, as long as you are acting as the administrator and / or developer for those websites and / or presentations.


看起來是允許商業使用?

但是
近日再去它的官網 CU3ER 變成1.x版了
卻變成更改授權分成3種, 商業使用要 $
https://getcu3er.com/signup

那繼續使用舊版的
應該不用付費吧?

雖然大呆大大的看法比較悲觀, 不過二呆認為應該是可以用的.

從 0.9.2 版的授權內容來看, 應該可以用在一般的商業應用上 (You may deploy SWFs containing CU3ER as part of hired work for a third party as long as the SWF is unique to said party), 唯一例外的場合, 是你用他做出來的成品, 不能再被轉賣 (replicated / resold / redistributed as part of a template, application or service to additional parties.)

基於信賴保護原則, 當您使用 0.9.2 版時, 適用的就是當時的版權宣告; 不會因為後來改版了, 以前那些用 0.9.2 版做出來的成品就變成通通要付錢了. 當然, 新版會有新版的授權方式, 這是作者可以主張的權利. 但是新版權利不能再套用到舊版上去, 因為當您拿舊版來用時, 裡面的權利已經被耗盡, 沒有變更的餘力.

否則, 萬一我花 30 元, 去租個 DVD 來看三天, 結果看到第二天的時候, 影片公司突然宣布「新授權」, 規定租片金調漲為每天要付一百萬元, 那我已經租的人豈不是被當盤子耍?

哪有比較行....以上都只是「ITHome雙呆寶」的單方解讀而已, 真的要追究起來, 還是得請個不像我們這麼呆的法律人來解讀比較準確.....

不然, 我在這呆一句, 您在那呆兩段, 樓主被我們倆給耍得變成大頭呆了....

這一條的意思,是指你可以免費拿來評估,只要你的身分是 Admin 跟 developer,用來測試這個軟體的功能,上面可沒說你可以免費拿來裝在網頁上,給一般用戶瀏覽。

除非還有其他授權條文,只是你沒有列在上面。


通常比較小的公司,開發的軟體,會提供給用戶免費測試,滿意了再付款。

大公司,例如微軟,會推出比較便宜的版本,例如個人使用的版本,費用比較便宜,有區別於企業使用的版本。例如 Windows 7 就有好幾個版本。


這個應該不是陷阱,只是提供給你試用的機會,應該不可從事商業用途。

前面這句, 不是說可以用嗎?
還是你要幫我看 0.9.2版的條文到底是在講什麼?
