Q: In the absence of any conditions, can I use a free program without restriction?
- Firstly, free programs on the web are not always OSS. There are other types of free program with different license terms and conditions.
- Regardless of the license type, you are not allowed to include such a program in your product unless the program’s copyright holder permits you to do so.
- If you intend to use the program but cannot find the license conditions, you should contact the copyright holder directly.
