Re: Odoo v9 Paid Apps

Can someone help clarify for me here?  As I understand AGPL (which admittedly isn't my expertise), any part of these modules that interact with the AGPL Odoo core and are also AGPL, isn't that correct? 

I guess I don't understand why people believe that paid modules go against the open source nature of Odoo?  The core of the system is still Open Source and a good chunk of these modules are going to be open source is well. 

Would love to get the clarification, thanks.

I can confirm that I already had negative or anxious feedback from customers very recently. The only way I can currently reassure them is by reminding them the guarantees of the current AGPL license and the fact that there is strong association now...

I also believe other technologies or communities will soon jump on the occasion of laughing and warning everybody of the currently taken direction :-(

I'll say this: for us as an Odoo partner, Odoo becoming open source less
and less is a marketing disaster.
