Non Compliance and License Incompatibilitties
Integrating Cesanta’s software in a commercial product without fully releasing your source code or purchasing a commercial license can have legal ramifications. You agree to the terms under GPLv2 as you integrate our source code.
Incompatibilities, through taking different components of different sources and ignoring any license restrictions, can result in the software pieces you choose not to be permitted to be used in a single product.
If you are unsure which type of license is right for you, contact us to discuss.
