Re: Using Community Addon - Odoo Partnership Questionsby
The following post from OCA summarizes it quite nicely, I think:
So... I think you can install all OCA module without trouble
We can open up a true ‘App store’ to the benefit of both customers and publishers willing to invest in fully packaged, ready-to-use apps as long as they get some financial compensation. This is key for our CMS & Ecommerce but will benefit other apps too.
End users will be able to use standard proprietary modules published by large companies that are key for their business (e.g. UPS/Fedex connectors for ecommerce shipping).
The license remains ‘Copyleft’ which means we retain solid protection provided by those types of licences.
Customers using the CMS do not need to fear having to release the whole source code of their Odoo implementation to every website visitor.
The license is compatible with AGPL v3 which means that modules under this licence will continue to be usable with Odoo. We however advise current owners to migrate to LGPLv3 too.
Can some one confirm it

Benoît VézinaSorry, that's simply not true. First of all, as long as there is no contradictory regulation in the partnership contract, what I assume, you can install whatever you want, also the community edition, without breaking the partnership. BUT: If you want to combine proprietary licensed modules with other modules, you have to follow the license rules. For example you are not allowed to combine proprietary modules (for example the enterprise edition) with modules licensed under AGPL, see https://www.odoo.com/it_IT/blog/odoo-news-5/post/adapting-our-open-source-license-245 Cheers, trevi
