I'm currently working with a own WordPress blog and have to find out, that the
WordPress plugin is only free for personal use.

In the readme.txt file you find the folllowing inforatioons:

License: GPLv2 or later

PS: You'll need an [Akismet.com API key](http://akismet.com/get/) to use it.  Keys are free for personal blogs, with paid subscriptions available for businesses and commercial sites.

The above cited sentence told be, that commercial  sites have to pay
a fee, if they wnat to use that plugin.

Becuase this violate the Fedora policy, I would like your mind
about this situation.

Best Regards:

Jochen Schmitt
