Licensing and Pricing of West Wind WebSurge
West Wind WebSurge is open source with source code available on GitHub, but it is a licensed product. A free version is available that can be used without explicit registration or usage limits for personal use and checking out of WebSurge's features.
For commercial use or continued personal use, please purchase a Professional or Organizational license. Each licensed user requires 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 license is available to allow any number of users running unlimited numbers of West Wind WebSurge within a single organization. Any purchased license is valid for the duration of the major release that it was purchased for (ie. 1.00-1.99).
We provide the fully functional, unlimited version of West Wind WebSurge for download, so we rely on the honor system from users for supporting this product.
Thank you for playing fair!
