The FreeRTOS+FAT SL license terms are different to the FreeRTOS license terms.
FreeRTOS+FAT SL uses a dual license model that allows the software to be used
under a standard GPL open source license, or a commercial license. The standard
GPL license (unlike the modified GPL license under which FreeRTOS itself is
distributed) requires that all software statically linked with FreeRTOS+FAT SL
is also distributed under the same GPL V2 license terms. Details of both
license options follow:
- Open source licensing -
FreeRTOS+FAT SL is a free download and may be used, modified, evaluated and
distributed without charge provided the user adheres to version two of the GNU
General Public License (GPL) and does not remove the copyright notice or this
text. The GPL V2 text is available on the gnu.org web site, and on the
following URL: http://www.FreeRTOS.org/gpl-2.0.txt.
- Commercial licensing -
Businesses and individuals that for commercial or other reasons cannot comply
with the terms of the GPL V2 license must obtain a commercial license before
incorporating FreeRTOS+FAT SL into proprietary software for distribution in any
form. Commercial licenses can be purchased from http://shop.freertos.org/fat_sl
and do not require any source files to be changed.
FreeRTOS+FAT SL is distributed in the hope that it will be useful. You cannot
use FreeRTOS+FAT SL unless you agree that you use the software 'as is'.
FreeRTOS+FAT SL is provided WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied
warranties of NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. Real Time Engineers Ltd. disclaims all conditions and terms, be they
implied, expressed, or statutory.
