After the SixApart licensing fiasco took place only a
few weeks ago, the company — headed still by Ben
and Mena Trott, among others — has taken a good
look at its pricing structure on its Movable Type
software, and changed a few things.
“We were able to create pricing that enables us to invest more
in the development of Movable Type while also removing the
limitations that many users felt were too restrictive.
And, ultimately the new licensing is simpler to understand
and more flexible in how you can use the tool.”
The new agreements state that any paid licensing
scheme allows for an unlimited number of weblogs, clearing
up the somewhat confusing terms of contract originally posted.
We feel that 6A handled
the situation like a champ. They took in user feedback, didn’t react
irrationally, and came up with a great solution for their great software.
