Can we use community edition commercially

Jump to solution

We want to use the community edition of this software and modify some of it for using it commercially. Please let me know if this is legally possible?

 Please respond. Thanks.

I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advise...

But, a quick look at the terms of the Lesser GNU Public License (which Alfresco Community Edition uses) shows that you can use it for a commercial purposes and modify it. Check TL;DR Legal for a summary or read the actual license.

Now, in addition to the software license you also have to consider the trademark guidelines, or just not call your own commercial product anything resembling "Alfresco".
