Monetization and Licensing on replit
Profile icon

I have two questions about replit in general.

  1. For "repls" hosted on replit, are you allowed to make money/monetize off of it? Specifically, using ads. (I have seen people on replit get in trouble for this but the TOS does not say anything about it so I want to make sure)
  2. According to the Replit docs:

Content published to a public repl or a Classroom are automatically published under an MIT license

Does this mean if I use a license such as the GNU AGPL, will my code still have to be MIT licensed?

Thanks to all answers ;)

step 1: make ur repl private (then you can make it any license)
step 2: don't post it to talk (duh)
step 3: make sure ads are all tos compliant

and you will be fine.

i want people to see my code, just not have permissions to make money off of it.

Maybe try hosting it somewhere else. It it's a server, you could try github and github pages.

Also, trying to profit while using free products aimed at helping the community doesn't seem nice (legal, but not ethical). Maybe ask for donations?

i never was gonna monetize off replit. i was just wondering if it was allowed. the licensing thing is what im most concerned about

If the TOS doesn't deny it, technicially it allows it?

(I take no responsibility for any consequences received for following this logic)

To question 2 I think you can use a different license. The MIT thing probably applies to those without licenses. For question 1 idk why i answered this second probably not without repl getting something. I mean you are using repl as the hosting/compiling site so if it even is allowed to monetize things repl probably should get a share. I can't confirm 100% but Im just using common knowledge.

@robowolf
yeah I agree with what you are saying. It's really confusing.

Yeah. I would suggest just not monetizing things on repl.
