I've a fundraising sale event coming up. We frequently look for things to
sell that are useful, novel, etc. I have previously thought to burn CDs of
useful software and sell them, but only really decided it's worth it this
year. My immediate thoughts are:
* OpenOffice.org v1.01 binaries for linux/win32
* Mozilla binaries for linux/win32
* RedHat 8.0 (with absolutely no support!)
all would be unmodified. A couple of things:
1. Is this actually, definitely legal for me to do in each case?
OpenOffice website is a little vague on this (or perhaps I missed
something). I'm pretty sure it's okay with RH and mozilla, although
perhaps someone knows better. AFAIR gpl really only refers to source not
binary, I don't think distributing source is any use to these people,
although I'll certainly offer it. Any pointers to docs on the specific
sites would be great.
2. Assuming answer 1 is yes, I need to be able to prove this to any snide
muppet who comes up telling me I'm a software pirate. Is there a doc for
each that states this reasonably simply.
3. Any suggestions for other useful stuff? It's not a technical audience
and is almost entirely windows users.
Thanks in advance,
