Announcing Version 1.0.0 of the First PolyForm Licenses

July 9, 2019

The PolyForm Project is pleased to announce 1.0.0 versions of its first licenses:

PolyForm Noncommercial 1.0.0 is a general noncommercial license for software.

PolyForm Strict 1.0.0 removes permission to distribute copies and make changes, leaving only permission to use for noncommercial purposes.

PolyForm Internal Use 1.0.0 permits use for internal business purposes.

PolyForm Small Business 1.0.0 permits use by small businesses and other small organizations.

PolyForm Free Trial 1.0.0 permits a free, time-limited trial.

These licenses represent the hard work and feedback of too many contributors to name, over a period of eleven months.

In the near future, PolyForm Project plans to release an additional license that prohibits licensees from competing with the licensor using the licensor’s own software.
