Hi...I read the GPL and open source rules but having hard time understanding. I need your help.

I am opening a Webdesign company specializing in Online Shop.

I think OsCommerce is the best solution for my company since I can customize it.

I still don't know what are the basic rule I have to follow.

Can someone tell me some of the basic rules I have to follow in plain english?

Is is regal to use OsCommerce as a solution and charge for instalation, graphic design?

Do I have to tell my client that I am using OsCommerce?

Is it ok to change layout of the pages to make it look better? I don't think everyone wants to have same main page.

Do I have to show copyright to Oscommerce message on the site?

Please there are many more things I would like to know..please give me some advises so I don't end up getting sued

Thank you so much for your help

Yes you can charge for install, customization..whatever you want.

 

You do not have to tell the client, but you should...

 

You can change the layout anyway you like.

 

You do not have to show any copyright info "in plain view" on the shop/catalog side, but in admin it should show. You can not remove the copyright inside the code files themselves.

 

 

Even if you modify and customize the cart, it will still be GPL and your customers can in turn do what they want with it too.

change the word should to must

 

This is part of the released conditions.

 

If you are open to your customers, on what you are using, what you are doing, generally if you provide the services, you will not be sued...

 

cheers and good luck in your endevours...
