Can I include Freeware in Commercial Application? [on hold]

I’m developing a commercial application. During setup I show End User that my software could use other third party software. On First launch of my application End User is invited to click a button to download an orginal portable .zip version of a freeware program. He can accept or not. This program will be launched from my application GUI. I don’t distribute this freeware, I ask only to download it or not. Then extract the portable package. No modification at all. A last thing, this portable .zip freeware, is untouched and it will be downloaded from my site. This to avoid freeware updates causing possible crash with my GUI. Is all this legal? I hope in your reply Thanks a lot in advance.

Applying for Schengen Visa to attend a conference as a freelance web developer, but have other commercial documents

I’m a freelance web developer from Morocco, I started a small business for selling car parts 4 years ago and have legal documents …etc, I stopped the business 1 year after and focused on freelancing which I’ve been doing for more than 7 years but started full time just couple of years ago. However, I still have the legal documents for selling car parts…etc

Now I have a conference invitation in Germany related to web development and the work I do as a freelancer, I have proves of income from freelance clients, and have letter from a company I work with. My question is: – Should I include the car parts business papers with these documents in the application or not, knowing it’s completely unrelated to what I do at the moment.

Installing a commercial wildcard SSL cert on Nginx

I’m trying to install a Godaddy wildcard SSL certificate on AWS Lightsail (Ubuntu/Nginx). The nginx.conf is mainly the default one that gets installed with nginx…

I did a sudo nginx -t and everything looked good so I restarted nginx. In a browser I get “This site can’t be reached”. When I do a curl it hangs. I’ve turned debug on for the error.log, so now I get an error like this…

Any ideas why this isn’t working?

What exactly happens if I use a library with a GPL license in a commercial product?

I’m starting a project that involves OCR reading and I was planning to use pytesseract which uses the GPLv3 license. I tried to understand what exactly the GPL license means when it says “modify” but I’m still not sure. If I import and use the library do I then need to release my code under the GPL license?

Also, what does the GPL license mean when it says distribute, if I write a piece of software and charge companies for me to examine their data with it, am I distributing it?

Thank you so much for any help.

Who were the Bauhaus photographers and what was their impact on commercial and artistic photography today?

The Bauhaus was a German art, craft, and design school which operated between the World Wars. I was recently at an exhibit of works — mostly paintings, architectural drawings, and sculpture — which had a small selection of photographs and a caption which read:

The New Photography

Photography played a central role in construction the Bauhaus image by documenting the school’s buildings and design objects, but it also served as an important means of pure artistic expression. There was no dedicated department at the Bauhaus until 1929, when professional photographer Walter Peterhans joined the faculty. The medium nonetheless captivated both teachers and students, who drew inspiration from sources ranging from constructivism and avant-garde film to illustrated newspapers and magazines.

The photographs in the collection I saw, however, seemed primarily of interest as documents of the school’s buildings and of some of the created objects (as the first sentence of the caption). Online, I found these Walter Peterhans images, some of which are easy to see as related to the aesthetic of many of the Bauhaus painters. For example, this:

thumbnail for commentary

doesn’t look so far off from Klee:


The Bauhaus artists had an enormous impact on design and especially on architecture. Many of them are — well, if not household names, you’d recognize their most famous works if you saw them on a dorm room poster. What about the photographers? Particularly, did their work exhibit new ideas and influence in the technical or artistic world of photography itself, beyond capturing and reflecting the ideals and aesthetic of Bauhaus painters, architects, and designers in other media?

What is the best process for designing a non commercial Website?

I am about to redesign a website about threatend animals for a governmental client. This website is very much text-based. I am wondering how to approach the design process, as I don’t have any information about the user (non commercial site, no information given, site is supposed to adress “everyone”) Maybe someone of you already did projects in the non-profit /governmental sector and has some advice.

Thanks a lot! Konstanze

How deso share-alike play with commercial use? [migrated]

I’d like to know how a licence can both allow commercial use and be share-alike.

My reasoning is as follow :

If we use it in a product (which is authorized by the “commercial use” part), we have to release it with the same licence, since we’re creating from “the material of the original work”. Therefore, our product must also be free to use.
