re: Should I open source my code? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm literally at this point myself. However, why not do both? Open source it, but make your company off of it? I don't see why you can't create a service that uses it, such as a website that charged a monthly fee to use your api... which the backend code is running off the open source code. I don't feel that is wrong. I mean if you look at pretty much any company that makes money in the tech scene, they use free code some point in the source code. But don't expect to tell others not to use it to make money, if you are going to open source it. That just wouldn't be fair.
