R License

Juan Ulises Bohorquez Carvajal
Hello, I work in the area of ​​Geomatics in  Ecopetrol,  Ecopetrol is an Oil & GAS company with 10,000 employees. The licensing of R allows me to use it in production at my company or academic use only?
Sincerely,


JB.

'R' like many open source applications, uses several licenses because it
includes several other open source components.  If you are concerned about
using R for commercial purposes or in a commercial environment then you (or
your attorney/legal dept.) should consult

http://www.r-project.org/Licenses/

The intent is for to to be available free, for wide use.  But no one else
knows your intended use case.

Cheers,
Tim

In reply to this post by Juan Ulises Bohorquez Carvajal
This is not an appropriate forum to be obtaining legal advice in. That said, the licenses [1] for R do not discuss the size of your company. They do discuss your rights and responsibilities should you make changes to R. People who want to modify or incorporate R in their own software tend to have to pay close attention to those terms while those who merely use it as-is tend to have less to worry about. Also keep in mind that much value is found in contributed packages that may have a variety of licenses, so be aware of those licenses as you add packages to your workflow.

You will probably find it useful in reading these licenses to familiarize yourself with the definition of "Open Source. [2]

And what would be the authority that supplies such a certificate? R is
not the proprietary property of a company or person, so I don't think
a body exists that could supply such an authoritative email.

What does (or should) exist are the comments in the source files
explaining the license terms, and this is echoed in the banner message
on startup.

I'm sure if you asked very nicely you could get a letter from someone
held in high esteem by the R community - some professor at an ancient
university perhaps - stating their belief that you can use R for your
company in accordance with the licenses. But that would just be
repeating what you've already heard here. The licensing is with the
code, and clearly stated.

Other, larger companies use R extensively - see this recent blog entry:

http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com/2014/05/companies-using-r-in-2014.html

Note in particular the banner when R starts: "ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY"
- which means if a bug in R makes one of your gas processing plants
explode, there's probably nobody to sue - but if you read the small
print on proprietary software licenses you'll probably find similar
terms anyway. R puts it out there in block capitals every time.

Note in particular the banner when R starts: "ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY"
- which means if a bug in R makes one of your gas processing plants
explode, there's probably nobody to sue - but if you read the small
print on proprietary software licenses you'll probably find similar
terms anyway. R puts it out there in block capitals every time.
