This in my eyes one important point. At the moment their is NO LICENSES
on any of your 'paid' modules.
So if need to spend money to access code is totally unrelated of the
licenses of modules.

On i don't see if i buy modules what i get how i can run
this code on how many instance. How can i redistribute. I want to know
this BEFORE i buy. And far i know i did any information if i have the code.
As a open source consultant i would tell the customer:
Either you can not install this code if you are unsure about that.
OR you install and someone ask for your code to AGPL agreement then you
just publish all code running on your instance. [1]

In Wordpress and Joomla their are MANY 'paid' modules. But their license
is GPL. So somehow this works.
In their are already 'paid' AGPL modules. So you can pay
for the convenience of easy install or you got to github.

Kind Regards


[1] pretty sure this is a nice legal case for the free software
foundation if someone starts with a loyer ;)
