As president of a large computer user group in South Florida, I wonder if I may distribute the program download to our membership, as well as create and offer a tutorial for our members?

 

We have about 400 members in this group and most are senior citizens. CCleaner would be a great tool for them to have. Thanks.

I am not sure if you can redistribute it, take a look at the license if there is any such thing in CCleaner. ;)

 

I am not sure if you can distribute it, but I think it should be allowed to distribute it.

 

As far as I know, it is freeware, so even though the term is pretty lousy, I guess it means you are allowed to distribute it (atleast aslong as you dont make any profit).

 

Sucks that CCleaner isnt released under an OSI-compliant open-source license such as the GNU GPL (GNU General Public License) by the FSF (Free Software Foundation). :(

OR....re-engineer it ...to add spyware for example....a problem that sometimes shows up in Open Source.

 

At very least you could probably add a link to CCs site to your groups home page to make it easy for your members to download. :)
