You can be released from the requirements of the AGPL license by purchasing a commercial license from Quartam Software.
Buying such a license is mandatory as soon as you develop commercial activities involving Quartam PDF Library without disclosing the source code of your own applications. These activities include: offering paid services to customers as an ASP, serving PDF documents generated dynamically in a web application, shipping Quartam PDF Library with a closed source product.
Such a commercial license releases you from the requirements of the copyleft AGPL license, which include:
- distribution of all source code, including your own product
- licensing of your own product under the AGPL license
- prominent mention of the Quartam PDF Library copyright and the AGPL license
- disclosure of modifications to the library
If you have any questions about the applications of the AGPL or commercial license, please send an email to email@example.com.
