 Personal, professional, and freeware licenses 

Personal license

The personal license applies to Web Idea Tree (WIT) usage, and to redistribution of productions which are realized with WIT :

  • WIT personal version is strictly reserved for private, personal and non profit use. Use of WIT in educational context (schools, universities) is allowed, always in a non profit purpose.
  • WIT personal version allows you to freely publish and distribute the productions which are realized with WIT (web sites, electronic books...), as long as you do not generate profits with these productions.  However, if you sell or make some profit with your productions, you must acquire the WIT professional version. You may not sell any production realized with WIT personal version.

Companies and commercial organizations must acquire the professional license.

Professional ed. only license

  • WIT professional version allows commercial or corporate use. 
  • WIT professional version allows you to freely publish and distribute the productions which are realized with WIT (web sites, electronic books...), whatever you generate profit or not with these productions. You can sell your productions that are realized with WIT professional version.

Freeware license
