Hi!

I'm doing an internship in a small company. We have an old PPS System.
My job is it do develop a Reporting-System (with all that fancy Graphics
and Tables) to integrate it in the old System.
My English is not the best. Especially not good enough in legal
questions. So befor I make an mistake (an mistakes with licences etc
seem to be very expensive) I'd like to know what am I allowed to do with
the BIRT-Framework. What of the thing I develop can be sold to the
customers? Or am I only able to sell the support. I'm well aware that I
cannot sell the Framework itself. But can I sell Products I developed
that use the framework?

Sorry for the stupid question. But I'm new in the Business (doing a
first internship)

thanks a lot

don't try to figure out questions like this yourself or with help from a
newsgroup. This is not a question for software developers to answer.
Your company should have legal people you can go to with this kind of
question. Here is a pointer to some docs to get you (and your legal
people) started:
