    75 When you buy a commercial package you are paying for the convenience of not having to compile the software on your own.  All of the scripts and tools used to build PySoy, all its dependencies, and any other utilities or games its bundled with are required to be available under the '''GNU AGPLv3'''. 
     77  You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms 
     78of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the 
     79machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, 
     80in one of these ways: 
     81[...] 
     82    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated 
     83    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the 
     84    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no 
     85    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the 
     86    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to 
     87    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source 
     88    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party) 
     89    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain 
     90    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the 
     91    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the 
     92    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is 
     93    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements. 
     94 
     95    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided 
     96    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding 
     97    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no 
     98    charge under subsection 6d.

     101When you buy a commercial PySoy package you are paying for the convenience of not having to compile the software on your own.  Whereas most GNU/Linux distributions include all of our dependencies packaged and maintained by volunteers, many of these packages are not available in binary form for Windows and OSX and can take a good deal of time to download each component separately, compile it, and arrange it in the filesystem so it can be found by the other components.  All of the scripts and tools used to build PySoy, all its dependencies, and any other utilities or games its bundled with are required to be available under the '''GNU AGPLv3'''. 
     102 
     103The license also permits redistribution in either source or binary form, so once one binary package is compiled or purchased it can be redistributed to others.  We only ask that our [wiki:Trademark trademark] is respected when distributing modified versions to avoid confusion.

    77105We will never sell PySoy under an alternative license or offer license exceptions.
