I'm just reading the license, I don't have any other contact or means to know
their intention, so I'm very ready to believe they had other reasons but it
certainly reads as if they expect any host to get a license from them, and as
far as I am aware those licenses are only available with payment to them. That
would seem to exclude FLOSS distribution?
Again I have not asked them for a license to distribute something under a FLOSS
license, so I do not know that it would be rejected. I am just assuming that
since many serious FLOSS projects will not distribute binary versions with VST
complied in that Steinberg did not allow this.
