We believe that the Open Source model works well for a product such as this. That we would not have been able to make the kind of fast progress that we’ve been able to make any other way. We also, as creative geeks who like to build cool stuff, just like this way of doing things - it’s just more fun!
The complete BlogBridge application and service source code is released under the “GPL”. The issues relating the Open Source licensing are sometimes subtle. We have done our very best to be true to both the spirit and the letter of the open source practices.
By the way, be aware that we will at some time go to a dual license model, with some kind of commercial licensing terms for certain specific kinds of uses. We will make every attempt to protect the Open Source status of BlogBridge and it’s continuing support.
