For greater clarity, PrestaShop is updating its licenses!

Before the much-awaited release of version 1.4 of our Open-Source e-commerce program, the PrestaShop team is happy to announce the updating of its distribution licenses.
We wanted to make the creation and distribution of PrestaShop extensions or themes easier and clearer for our Community.

From today, the PrestaShop standard theme and modules are published under the AFL 3.0 license. The entire PrestaShop program, with the exception of these elements and third-party libraries, remain under the OSL 3.0 license without any changes.

 

What changes for our contributors? The choice of how to distribute their work!

Derivative work created using PrestaShop’s default modules or theme will no longer have to be made public and neither will its source code. The AFL 3.0 license is identical to the OSL 3.0 license with the exception that it does not require the source code of derivative work to be provided. (AFL 3.0 – 1c)

→ Before

Any changes or development made to a file published under OSL 3.0 had to be made public under the same license. Any changes made to files protected by copyright and distributed under the OSL 3.0 license are considered as derivative work. These changes have to be made public under the OSL 3.0 license when working with the PrestaShop solution (distribution, use… agencies, integrators, traders, etc.).

→ Now

You have the choice of whether to make the source code of your derivative work accessible or not in order to preserve your business activity as you wish.

We sincerely believe that this update will be of benefit to all, whether you are a retailer, developer, web designer, or partner…
Open-Source is the response to many Internet needs… PrestaShop strongly supports all e-commerce projects based on its free application, which is and will remain Open-Source!

Already more than 50,000 websites have placed their trust in us and more than 200,000 members have joined forces around this project which has experienced huge growth for more than 3 years…

Thank you to all!
