Piwigo Licensing

Hi All,

I have a small photo scanning business and store my customers photos online for their retrieval.  I pay pretty hefty fees for having these photos redundantly backed up in several locations. I charge my customers a small fee for this service.

I just discovered Piwig and am so very impressed. What a great community and product.

Am I able to use Piwig to create my customers their own accounts on my host and have them take more control of their photos?

I read the Piwigo Licensing agreement and am still unclear on this.  I understand the difference between freedom and a fee beer.  I am a SBO and realize I would need to donate / give back to the Piwig community in someway for using the product.

Wanted to get a clear answer before heavily vesting time into setting up this great product.

Thanks in advance for your time in reading this.

Hi

it's Piwigo, not Piwig

all is explained on the GPL Wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_General_Public_License

short: you can do what ever you want without any retribution
like http://piwigo.com does

Re: Piwigo Licensing

Many photographers all over the world are using Piwigo for their business and they don't have to "give back". Of course, the Piwigo Association would appreciate a donation, but you decide if want to donate, when and how much ;-)

I hope you will have a nice business "powered by Piwigo" !
