Did your legal department read the PHP license at all? There is nothing in the PHP license that states this.
The clauses of the PHP license are, with my embedded comments in 's: 1. Redistributions of source code must retain the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer. 2. Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution. [So, so far your only requirement, if you are actually redistributing PHP itself, which it sounds like you are, is that somewhere you need to put the PHP copyright found in the LICENSE file.] 3. The name "PHP" must not be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software without prior written permission. For written permission, please contact [EMAIL PROTECTED] 4. Products derived from this software may not be called "PHP", nor may "PHP" appear in their name, without prior written permission from [EMAIL PROTECTED] You may indicate that your software works in conjunction with PHP by saying "Foo for PHP" instead of calling it "PHP Foo" or "phpfoo" [Don't call your product PHP 5.0 or Super PHP] 5. The PHP Group may publish revised and/or new versions of the license from time to time. Each version will be given a distinguishing version number. Once covered code has been published under a particular version of the license, you may always continue to use it under the terms of that version. You may also choose to use such covered code under the terms of any subsequent version of the license published by the PHP Group. No one other than the PHP Group has the right to modify the terms applicable to covered code created under this License. 6. Redistributions of any form whatsoever must retain the following acknowledgment: "This product includes PHP, freely available from <http://www.php.net/>". [Finally say where you got PHP from so people can go fetch it themselves. The only other thing in the LICENSE file is the warranty disclaimer and some contact info. So, no mention of html source code, compiler source code or anything similar. Now, one of the other licenses of the various bits you are using, such as perhaps MySQL's may place further restrictions on you.] -Rasmus On Mon, 19 Aug 2002, daniel cozzolino wrote: > Hello all, > > I have an issue with an application I have developed that has Macromedia > Director interfacing with MySql via PHP.
