[jitsi-users] License for Jitsi when used as part of a commercial product development


#1

We wish to use Jitsi for our commercial product development. We plan to develop SIP clients for Android, iOS, Windows phone and PC browser to have voice and video calls.

Please let us know the licensing terms under which Jitsi is available, especially in the context of us using it for our commercial product.

Many Thanks and Best Regards,
Mahesh Kumaraguru

Please read up on open source licensing, of which there are many - GPL, LGPL, MIT, AL etc.
My question to the jitsi mailing list is why are different components under different licenses? I have seen Apache License and LGPL being used mostly.

We have switched all Jitsi projects to Apache. External components
come under the license that their respective owners chose for them.

Which component are you interested in exactly?

libjitsi is still described as under LGPL I think from what I read on github. Maybe it's a bit misleading but the 'Licence' IS Apache and here's the description
libjitsi is an advanced Java media library for secure real-time audio/video communication. It allows applications to capture, playback, stream, encode/decode and encrypt audio and video flows. It also allows for advanced features such as audio mixing, handling multiple streams, participation in audio and video conferences. Originally libjitsi was part of the Jitsi client source code but we decided to spin it off so that other projects can also use it. libjitsi is distributed under the terms of the LGPL.
