PHP Fusion Core 7 - Released under AGPL v3
Free License (GNU/AGPL)
PHP-Fusion v7 is released under the terms and conditions of version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License. For further information please visit www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/agpl-3.0.html or refer to the agpl.txt file included in the distribution package. You may alter the code in any way you wish and redistribute it either as is or containing your own modifications but it is mandatory that you retain the "Powered by PHP-Fusion" footer copyright notice as described in the readme file included in the distribution package; or rephrased in such a manner that it does meet the following requirements as stated in
the AGPL license text, as quoted:
Terms of AGPL Copyright Notice
Affero GPL version 3 Chapter 0 - Terms and Conditions
An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices" to the extent that it
includes a convenient and prominently visible feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2) tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
This means that the copyright footer of PHP-Fusion may not be altered in such a way that it doesn't display our copyright notice in a way that isn't "convenient and prominently visible", meaning that no popups linked to graphic images, no tooltip-like solutions linked to images etc, are allowed.
With adherence to that, the Copyright Footer must contain the following:
• "Powered by PHP-Fusion" is optional but is requested for clarity purposes;
• Copyright PHP-Fusion 2002-2008 Nick Jones
- with "PHP-Fusion" linking to http://php-fusion.co.uk;
• Released as free software without warranties;
• Link to the Affero GPL version 3 license;
If the original version is modified and redistributed with less than 80% change, the Copyright Notice as per the terms of the Affero GPL version 3 must remain intact.
If the Copyright Notice Footer does not contain the 3 key elements as described above, this invalidates the license and could be subject to prosecution by FSF terms.
If you for some reason do not feel comfortable with this solution, please consider to purchase a copyright removal license instead, see below for details.
There are two (2) different licenses available to be purchased. Please choose the appropriate license for your situation, if you have any questions regarding these licenses you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org
* Copyright Removal - Only allows you to remove the copyright footer at the bottom of the web-page, it does not allow you to remove the copyright header inside the PHP files, nor does it allow you to modify and resell PHP-Fusion for any monetary amount.
* Proprietary License - This license removes you from all restrictions of the AGPL v3 and places you under a license written by PHP-Fusion management. Details of this license will be released in the near future.
