php – Choosing a license for paid software

Question:

Hello everyone!) I am developing a web script in PHP, for sale.

I want to give buyers access to a project in Gitlab and I don’t know which license to choose.

Tell me, is there a license prohibiting the resale and distribution of software to other people?

Answer:

The choice of license largely depends on the country of distribution.

Most of the international licenses in the Russian Federation are not legally binding. They try to adhere to them mainly out of respect for the developers and the possibility of entering the international market.

Therefore, to select, you need to know in which country it will be distributed. And in any case, the license will be commercial.

It is advisable for each country to consult with "local" lawyers. When there is no money for lawyers, they take a product similar in structure as a basis and rework its contract.
