I’ve been working on an addon for blender ( a completely new feature ) with intent of selling it for a monthly fee.
I’ve read a bit about licenses and I need some clarification:
If I make a script and sell it, the GPL license obligates me to give the source code to anyone who asks and anyone who has the source code can freely edit and redistribute it.
Doesn’t that mean that I’m effectively out of business cuz someone can just buy my addon and then give an unlimited amount of it away to everyone for free, resulting in me losing money and control over my work?
Can a patent prevent it from happening ( I checked, and my feature can be patented )?
To clarify: I have no issue with giving away the source code and someone editing it, but I don’t like the idea of someone just giving away my work for free/redistributing it without consent.
