Open Source AGPL v3

With version 5.0, the free and open source Community Edition is under the open source license AGPL v3 (Affero General Public License). Since October 2010, Shopware has been providing a mutually beneficial value to all members of the Shopware Community. The involvement of thousands of members in the code development means that Shopware is based on a broader scale, thus ensuring an even greater quality of our product. The "copyleft" provisions of the AGPL also enable us to maintain control over any and all changes to the code.
