( this came to my attention from http://www.mastersketchup.com/sketchup2013/ )Trimble Navigation Limited and/or its affiliates (“Trimble”) gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the executable version of the Software for non-commercial use only. Non-commercial use means: you may not sell, rent, lease or lend the output of the Software or the Services. If you are a for-profit organization of any kind, or an employee of a for-profit organization using the Software or Services in that capacity, you are engaged in commercial activity; therefore, in order to use the Software and Services, you must purchase a SketchUp Pro license.
I guess anyone w/ an Etsy store either doesn't upgrade, or has to pay the $95 annual ``license maintenance fee'' --- what happens if one makes something for personal use, then needs to move and goes to sell it in a yard sale? Is one then guilty of the same sort of thoughtcrime the BATF uses to control cartridge firearms manufacture w/o an FFL?
How does everyone else feel about this sort of thing?
My inclination is to create a new page for commercial software on the wiki and place all the payware and license-limited freeware there --- any objections?
This also has moved making a new ``Hello World'' Shapeoko file to the top of my To-Do list for the weekend.
