    hi everyone,

    can anyone here in this forum give me some advice and confirm that I can sell software that 's licensed under GPL ?

    Basically I want to sell GPL software without modifying the code and/or the license itself.. Just sell it for profits

    thanks in advance

    Good FAQ here:

    http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html

    Scroll down on that site - you'll find your answer.

    I prefer Apache or BSD style licensing - because I do not need to disclose the modified source code, unlike GPL. :)
