Licencing for government

Recommended Posts


I work in local government (UK) and have been looking at open source alternatives to some of our 'standard' packages which are installed. Im wondering what the licencing implications are for install of Paint onto some 5000 PCs across our organisation. Is this allowed under the licence? It's entirely for non-profit and certainly looks like Paint.net is clearly the best OS solution for graphics editing.

Any help is appreciated,

As I understand the license (or licence; apologies, I am from the US) that would be fine. But you may want to consider contacting Rick Brewster, the lead developer of the program and owner of dotPDN LLC (the company that owns the program) directly for verification of that.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
