according to Artifex’s licensing information, you’re only free to use Ghostscript (which PDFcreator is based on) within your corporation. It’s not allowed to send PDFs to other corporate users:
- Use Ghostscript to translate old PostScript files into PDF files for use in generating internal reports or documents (within organization).
- Use of Ghostscript for research and education purposes (e.g., developing a prototype for a college computer science project) that are not distributed to third parties for additional use.
- Use Ghostscript within an IT department for internal uses only.
Could you update your FAQ please that it’s not allowed to send the PDFs created by PDFcreator to other corporations without having a license by Artifex if you’re a corporate user? This might create huge legal problems to many users. I can’t use PDFcreator, since the fee for Artifex Ghostscript is unpayable high (more expensive than Acrobat).
Could you please give a short statement?
