Ok.  We're moving forward with allowing people to buy the rights to use the code for our various projects under a few licenses.  Here's where we're at right now:

- Illumination Software Creator - Personal Use Only source license : $50
- Illumination Software Creator - GPL source license : $300
- Illumination Software Creator - BSD source license : $600

- Linux Tycoon - Personal Use Only source license : $25
- Illumination Software Creator - GPL source license : $150
- Illumination Software Creator - BSD source license : $300

These are just two examples (RB Dev Pack, 2299, etc will be included as well).

Thoughts on pricing/licensing?

I think this is a fair price for the source to a quality application.  You're still going to be giving away the binaries for free?  
 
Hey Bryan, can you make Joomla plugins with Illumination Software Creator?
 
The GPL pricing is definitely priced well, but does the BSD license really warrant 2x the cost?  Are you concerned with someone profiting from your work?  
 
+Daniel Pedroza Nope.  But if you license the code you can extend Illumination to add new targets like Joomla. :)

+Derek Belrose My thought was this: If you get the GPL license, any modifications you make (and release) can benefit others.  If you get the BSD license you are allowed to keep your code private.  Not really worried about other people profiting from this code (honestly, I think that would be great)... but if someone is getting the BSD license, that is most likely their goal.
 
+Bryan Lunduke yeah I see what you're saying.  I think this pricing works great.  I hope you share the results if you go forward with this.
 
Fantastic approach, free binaries and paid for source! I think the pricing's great too. Awesome.
 
I'm confused. Was the second group of prices supposed to be for Linux Tycoon? Or is the price for licensing Illumination non-deterministic? :P
 
What is ISC written in these days now that RB changed their EULA terms?
