    Hi guys,

    Been lurking and reading for a long while now trying to find a niche and a succesful way of implimenting it.

    Think I have figures what I am going to do, but just wondering (yes I have googled and read) if I can freely sell/distribute software licened under GPL 3.0? As far as i can see I can, so i was thinking of creating a website that offers free downloads to said product that currently is only available to purchase through the creators and implimenting PPD to make me some money, along with supplying a membership area so users can quickly download directly without needing to fill in offers etc.

    Is there any legalities at all that could complicate this method?

    Cheers
