Announcing Version 1.0.0 of the PolyForm Licenses

May 24, 2020

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 Perimeter 1.0.0 allows use and distribution, but not in a manner competitive with the software.

PolyForm Defensive 1.0.0 allows use and distribution, but not in a manner competitive with the licensor of the 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.
