License and Restrictions

Barebones CMS is released under a dual-license. For those who want the licenses and restrictions in English (i.e. not legaleze), here's a brief summary:

While the product itself is free, financial donations are highly encouraged - especially if you start asking questions on the support forums. This is a professional product - you would want money for your time spent as well. If you can't donate financially, that's fine but consider spreading the word among your friends and work associates.

A lot of CMS products require attribution (e.g. "Powered by Barebones CMS"). While the gesture would be nice even for Barebones CMS, it paints a big target on your website for hackers looking for outdated, vulnerable versions of a product. For many open source products, all a hacker generally has to do is go to Google and search for "Powered by [product name]" and they get a list of potentially vulnerable websites.

The only requirement for Barebones CMS is that all copyrights remain intact within the code itself, which shouldn't be a problem for anyone because the copyright lines are never publicly displayed.
