You can download the Community version of LiveCode from our servers at 
no cost. However, usage of the Community version of LiveCode binds you 
to the terms of the GPL. Any *stackfiles* you create with LiveCode 
Community must be distributed under the GPL (basically meaning that 
anyone you give a stackfile to has the right to modify it and 
redistribute the modified version as they see fit, as long as they also 
abide by the GPL).

So whilst the Community edition is 'free' (as in beer), it also enforces 
freedom on any code you write with it :)
