    No, since you are not rebranding the software. You have a right to your own site and domain.

    I understand. It is really hard to make important things sound simple and without too much explanation. Each consumer situation (or company for that matter) is different and we have no problem trying to explain it for our (potential) customers.

    Thank you for your recent purchase and let us know if you require any further information.

    I hope that explains it a bit better.
    I just payed for vBulletin forum a week ago, waiting for paypal to clear the transaction. This was a very interesting thread, good to know, since, some times, owners use lawyers language terms to simplify things for them and i guess it's understandable, this is why some times, things need to be clarified.

    I know this post isn't going to change Jelsoft's mind, but maybe members that are about to buy the option will think twice then..

    You're never allowed to rebrand the software. Even with a brand free license, just means you can remove every refrence to vBulletin/Jelsoft

    The branding free option allows you to remove
    Code:
        Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.6.4
    Copyright ©2000 - 2006, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.
    ..at the bottom, and
    Code:
    Powered by vBulletin
    in the head( <head>Forum name - Powered by vBulletin</head>) of the site.


    The version of the vBulletin you are allowed to remove WITHOUT branding free option, however, note what parts you are allowed to remove, only as long as you got the branding free option, as stated above.
    And this is done -- how?

    Yes, you don't need to purchase branding free to have permission to remove the "powered by .." from the TITLE.

    Yes, you don't need to purchase branding free to have permission to remove the version number from the FOOTER copyright.

    Yes, you need to purchase branding free to remove the copyright from the footer.

    No, even with branding free option purchased you are not permitted to rebrand the software as if it is some other software. But yes, you are permitted to place your own copyright to your web site in the footer. This web site is (c) Copyright yoursite.url (or company name).

    Users who purchase branding free option now can download 3.6.2 and above copies where branding free has been stripped by default.
