Published on

Could we make more money with proprietary extensions? Or maybe would we have less support?
For sure we would be paid for each used copy of our software so we could definitely make much more money. Right?

As a Joomla! extension developer you maybe have already asked yourself such or similar questions.
Or perhaps you want to become a developer and you're considering to start a business based on extensions for Joomla!. and you are not sure which license you should use for your extensions.
