Will Black Duck charge FOSS Foundations and projects to use the Open Hub API?

No, we will not. Black Duck believes that making our data freely available to open source foundations, projects, and contributors is a great way to help foster more rapid FOSS development. Accordingly, we won’t charge such direct participants of the FOSS ecosystem for access to Open Hub data through the Open Hub API. The combination of a restriction-free copyright license such as CC-BY, and this promise, means that the FOSS world can count on Open Hub data being both free as in freedom, and free as in no-charge.
