6 months ago I took Asterisk for free, created a webinterface around my product and now it is what somebody could call like finished. It is a CD with a debian linux as base system, adding an Asterisk and my webinterface (and of course some scripts I’ve written). I would like to sell this CD and give away some support with it. I “lost” 6 months of my life not seeing the sun when developing my CD. So I should get money for what I created and I need it…
What time did and does it take to create Asterisk and even Debain Linux? The six months I needed were a drop in a lake. So what am I crying? There are many more people who could take money but don’t. The next thing is, I don’t understand the GNU license really well.
The thing I want to express is, that I really would like to sell my CD with the debian and Asterisk on it (and of course my stuff), but I know that it should depend on two things:
- Is this ok by taking a look at the GNU license
and maybe more:
- Is this ok to sell my CD but you, the developers, give me the basis for free?
What can I do? What is your opinion? Please, don’t just tell me to give it away for free and not showing me a way what I can do for living.
