Thank you,

I realy use the Blender because is a good program.



Hi Lula,

Blender uses the GNU GPL license, which is enforced and protected by the 
Free Software Foundation (and by many other organizations).

Nobody can ever lock up Blender, without getting big problems with a lot of 
powerful organizations. That is guaranteed by the license, not by me. :)

More over, since 2002 I allowed everyone to add code to Blender under their 
own copyrights. Blender is legally owned by over 100 people already. They 
all agreed on licensing it as GNU GPL, but they will never agree to lock it 

So, don't worry!
