The first paragraph on that page is the important one:
The pChart library is released under two different licenses. If your application is not a commercial one (eg: you make no money by redistributing it) then the GNU GPLv3 license (General Public License) applies. This license allows you to freely integrate this library in your applications, modify the code and redistribute it in bundled packages as long as your application is also distributed with the GPL license.

Once it is under the GPL it can be used without restrictions.
Let's hope they keep it that way for release.

Oh, yes , you're right !

This just real GPL licence , no mandatory redistributing fee. Allways same problem: what for selling a GPL promotion CD with lot of GPL program inside.

Well, as far as I read it if you put pChart 2 as a separate lib on a CD and sell it, that would not be permitted.
But if LimeSurvey is using pChart 2 (and therefore it is included in the LS package) then it would be permitted.

Of course there is a loophole if someone says: My work is based on LimeSurvey where I stripped away everything except for pChart ;) - just not very credible ;).

You're right, pChart 1.x trunk isn't maintained anymore.

The v2 version will be available in a few days/weeks to the early adopters community ( http://www.pchart.net, http://wiki.pchart.net/ )

JD.

Thank you for that information ;)
