Open Source Licenses are available free to non-commercial open source software development projects that meet the Open Source definition, have a dedicated website, and an active community.
If you provide paid services for your open source software or distribute paid versions of your open source software, a license may or may not be granted to you at the discretion of the responsible license officer. Please contact us to check the available options.
To apply for a free license for your Open-Source (OSS) project,

The software can be installed on any number of computers and used by any number of concurrent open source project members.
A license is provided for a period of 1 year and allows for free upgrades to all new releases of the software within 1 year. License renewal is available on request.
Use of the software is restricted to a licensed user with no right to transfer the software to third parties.
