Re: can I sell fedora?



How about you ask them what you're buying?

Are they selling you the OS? If they say yes, then I would suspect that this was illegal.

Are they charging for their time to put the OS on CD? That would be fine.

Ask your government to read the GNU Public License and have them decide on it, I don't know. Since I'm not an expert in this area, I really can't offer any more information that what I've already said. However, I am a bit interested in your situation, so be sure to update us all when you're all done haha

Thanks

I think I have to explain what I want to do.

Actually I don't want to sell it. I want to buy it! And I am looking for
someone to sell it to me. I can not just have it for free. It may sound a
little bit tricky, but there is same tricky law in my country. Our government
has some kind of compensations for those who by OS. Some kind of anti-piracy
compaign.

This compensation is ment primarily for MS Windows, but I am going to install
FC3 on my new PC. So I want to know is it legal for some company to sell Fedora
to me for the price it wants? Can this price be as big as $100? So the amount
of maney that usualy goes to MS will go to me :)

To the best of my knowledge, this would be fine. I'd hang around with this thread for another day or two to get some more feedback, however.

Again, place emphasis on the fact that you are charging for your time and effort, and not for the software itself.

So you think I can not sell software per se?

If i burn Fedora CDs, find a customer and sell the CDs lets say for a 50$.

I


know its too much just for burning CD :). But the point is: will I break

the


license rules? If i can sell Fedora CDs, is there a limit for the highest
price?

Sell it under the basis that it is for your time, the time that it takes for you to download the software, buy a CD, spend time to burn it, etc etc. Don't sell the software itself, per se.

I don't know, your question should be asked at Red Hat, not on a support
list.

That being said, someone with a dial up connection would have a hard
time getting the ISO's or maybe they don't have a CD burner.  So if you
provide a service, getting paid for it is to me, no problem.

What I don't like is "for the price I want"  But you are the one that
has to look in the mirror every morning.

this
