The AGPLv3 considers network use to be distribution so the client would have to publish the source. They could still use it for free, but it would have to remain open source.

I thought it also prohibits commercial use, so the client would have to publish the source _and_ not sell access?

It allows commercial use.

Ah, thanks.

No Open-Source license forbids commercial use.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
