Use Kuma for commercial


(Sani Kenjito) #1

Hi,
I really like the Kuma platform and want to build my own site using Kuma. I want to use it for sharing just like MDN site. And I also want to put some ads on that site. Is it legal?

Thanks.

And as always, if it’s important, consult an attorney.

On a different note: if you do use Kuma, please do consider contributing back any worthwhile improvements you make. :slight_smile:
