Microsoft MVPs and Microsoft Employees get free Licenses

If you are a current Microsoft MVP or Insider, a Microsoft employee, or an employee of a company that offers free tools to Microsoft MVPs you qualify for a free license. Basically I want to give back to those that have given to the community and shared their knowledge or work. I'll consider anybody who has given back to the community for a free license.


License Agreement for West Wind WebSurge

West Wind WebSurge comes in several license modes: Free Personal and Evaluation, Single User and Site License.

West Wind WebSurge is source open with source code available on GitHub, but it is a licensed product. A fully functional free version is available for personal and evaluation use, but commercial use requires purchase of a license.

Personal and Evaluation License

The free personal and evaluation version is unrestricted and has all the features and functionality of the registered version, but shows occasional freeware notices in the user interface. Tampering with or removing of the notice is not allowed with the free personal evaluation license.

Commercial License

For commercial use of West Wind Web Surge a license is required. Commercial use is considered use within any commercial, government, religious, non-profit organization or any single proprietor with income exceeding $70k/year.

For commercial use a single user license can be purchased which removes the freeware notices. Each licensed user must have a separate license, but a single user may use multiple copies of West Wind WebSurge on multiple machines, given that only one copy at a time is in use.

An organizational site license is available to allow any number of users from a single organization to run unlimited numbers of West Wind WebSurge instances within that single organization.

Any purchased license is valid for the duration of the major release that it was purchased for (ie. 6.00-6.99) and free upgrades are available for minor version releases.
