Geomajas is developed under the GNU AGPLv3. AGPL stands for The Affero General Public License, often abbreviated as Affero GPL or AGPL. This is a new license based on version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPLv3), but has an additional term to allow users who interact with the licensed software over a network to receive the source for that program. By publishing this license, the FSF aims to foster user and development communities around network-oriented free software. Both GPLv3 and the GNU AGPL allow developers working on a project under one license to combine it with code released under the other. As a result, programmers who want to use the GNU AGPL for their own work can take advantage of the many libraries and other source files available under GPLv3. Developers working on GPLv3-covered projects will often be able to use modules under the GNU AGPL with minimal hassle as well, since the GNU AGPL's additional term has no requirements for software that doesn't interact with users over a network.
