    Legal bits

    Is there anywhere with the bits and bobs about the Joomla Edugeek terms and conditions. Does edugeek have specific changes to it's terms above and beyond the joomla terms, or do you have to use the same?

    My basic question is, can I create a personal/business website using the edugeek joomla package?

    Hi apoth0r.

    The package is just the Joomla core plus a collection of plugins and themes plus content / structure that is taylored for a school based website. Everything is freely available on its own, the package just brings it together as it were.

    If you want to use it for a personal / business website thats fine. All I would say is that IF you are creating a business website you are getting paid to build then be nice and donate to the Edugeek coffers

    Just to clear thing in the above post I was trying to say that if you wanted to use the package to create a site that you were being paid for you can and it would be nice if you donated some pennies from that sale to Edugeek.

    I read the question as if person X was being paid to create a site could they use the Edugeek Package over the standard Joomla install. What I didn’t understand was that this was also asking if person X could sell their website services using the Edugeek Package.

    In response to this I would like to give the following information.

    If you want to use the 1.0 Edugeek Package for your web design service then you can, but please can you credit Edugeek and provide a link back to us.

    Many thanks.

    Not a problem, Sysman.
    I appreciate all the hard work you have put into creating this package and it would be a pleasure to give credit where it is due.

    Kind regards

    Just to note standard open source rules apply depending on which version of the GPL or lGPL Joomla are using to develop the source under.

    The short version is that any attribution needs to remain in the code, the code must ALWAYS be available and provided to the end user and that you can't charge for access to said code. You can charge for distribution and for services pertaining to the installation or modification of the code but you can't say "it's all my own work".

    ... and as noted it's always polite to pay back to the project if you're getting monetary reward for your own work..

    Herein ends todays lesson...
