Hi everyone, I have a question about objects licensing. I would like to protect objects with password, but to do so I need to choose certain license type. I am working for a big company and we need to protect our source code, but we also will share those objects with our customers on our website (login required). My assumption is that I would rather choose Commercial license type, am I right? Does Commercial license type mean, that we agree for licensing imposed by website owner where the object is published (here – our website) or that we need to create our own license agreement (here – for both? website and objects?)?
I am a bit confused with those license types and I would be grateful for help!
The license type applies to the object you are creating. The user can see it in the tool settings window.
It is also used by https://bimcomponents.com if an object is uploaded there.
I can’t give you legal advice, but I think you should have your users accept the details of your own commercial license agreement on your site before download, and probably package your code as lcf and include a license agreement there also, or a copyright notice in the source code.
