What does the Open Source license mean?

Nextcloud is under the GNU AGPLv3 license, one of the most widely used open source licenses. Written with the participation of lawyers and industry leaders from around the world, it is a clear, balanced and well understood license, providing users with a level of certainty that no single company's license can provide. Today, it is a widely used and widely accepted license by many stakeholders, including developers, users, organizations and large companies.

AGPLv3 guarantees that all users of the software can use, study, share and improve the software without any legal risk. In addition, its patent clause guarantees all users a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to all patents held by current or future contributors to the code.

In addition, Nextcloud GmbH guarantees that each customer can use Nextcloud and exercise all the rights conferred by GNU AGPLv3 without infringing any patent or copyright.
