Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Hi Manuel,

Odoo has the right to change the licensing at any time however the founder and president of Odoo Fabien has stated many many times that that will not happen.

Is there something specific you are concerned about?

Actually yes: I'm concerned about implementing Odoo today (v8), and having to pay a license in 5 years time if I want to continue using v8, don't know how feasible this is, but it would completely change my perspective about this system today.

for 10 years people have been worried about this... but I don't see it happening. But I don't know the future. But highly doubt it will happen.

I just noticed that you said pay a license in 5 years to use v8. That could never happen. V8 has been released with the AGPL license. This license can never change. They can only change a license of a future version of odoo. So if you download a copy of v8 today you can use it until comets destroy the earth or you want to upgrade.

That's what I suspected but just wanted to double-check. Thanks again Stephen!
