    I am a freelancer and in discussions with an end customer to develop a web application. The code that I develop will be used by the customer in their organization as a intranet website.

    Based on my understanding of licensing (from your site):

    1) I will need a developer license to develop the aplication (I intend using RadControl for .NET)
    2) A GPL will suffice since the customer is using this for internal use and will not redistribute the software
    3) A copyright / acknowledgement of Telerik copyright needs to be place in the About page of the customers intranet application

    Please confirm if the above steps and assumptions are correct.

    Hello Kishore,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    A GPL would suffice if we had one. However, we do not have an open-source version of our AJAX controls. In order to develop an application you will need to purchase a license or the company you work for to purchase one for you.

    A purchased license of our .NET controls includes a run time royalty-free license to redistribute the controls in your own solutions. Your end users/clients will not need to purchase licenses in order to use the applications, you developed using our products, as soon as you comply with the redistribution guidelines in our end-user License Agreement. When you deploy your applications, you have to make sure that the DLL files of the Telerik controls are protected and locked, so that your clients don't have access to them. If your clients are going to update your project via using our controls in design time, this is considered as violation of our License Agreement and they will have to purchase the appropriate number of licenses for our controls.
