EPiCode Community Source License (ECSL)

All EPiServer modules and source code are made available through the EPiCode Community Source License (ECSL).

This license governs use of the software made available. If you use the software, you accept the license. If you do not accept the license, do not access or use the software and contact us to have your access to the software removed.

Summary

  • By accepting this license, you gain full access to all available source code and can use, reuse, modify, add to it, or even create some new product based on it's foundation. This usage is defined as "Internal Use" in the license.
  • Some modules are provided with a free (gratis) production usage license ("Production use"). Some require a commercial fee to be paid, and please contact BV Network AS (info@bvnetwork.no) with invoicing details.
  • The software is made available as-is, and any distribution of it by you as a product or service to a third party is done at your own risk.
  • The sharing of the source code is done to create opportunities for everyone, and to ensure that features and quality can improve over time for everyones benefit. An obligation for you in the license is therefore that you are required to make modifications of source code available to the project for possible inclusion in a future version. Any new feature or derived product that you make that do not modify existing source code, is of course your own and not part of this obligation.
