Hi

I'm a bit confused, some say Kendo UI Scheduler can be used for free but it seems to me I can only download and use a 30 day trial? 

Can I use Kendo UI Scheduler for free like forever in my own project or not?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Sander,

Thank you for contacting us!

As of now, Kendo UI Complete bundle is not available as open source but you have the opportunity to evaluate its trial version for 30 days.

Only the Kendo UI Web suite is available as open source, under the GPL license.

Telerik has made the Kendo UI Web available for Open Source community with the widely adopted GPLv3 <http://www.opensource.org/licenses/GPL-3.0> license. If you use the open source applications you have to comply with this license, which means that Telerik will not hold you liable for the use/ misuse of the product as this product is under third-party licensing (GNU GPLv3). The GPL is designed to ensure that you have the freedom to modify the software you use as you see it. In return, you are asked to ensure that any users of the software that you have built using GPL software receive the same freedom to modify your software in return. Licensing under GPLv3.0 ensures the highest amount of availability in the open source community. 

Due to the complexity of the GPL and the ambiguities inherent in copyright law, it is not appropriate for us to advise you on your specific licensing decisions. The best and safest choice is to contact legal counsel so that you are sure of getting the rights you need.

I hope this helps.

Please get back to me if I could be of further assistance.
