In reply to Jess Hampshire:

Correct, requiring a royalty would not be compatible with the Open Source Definition [1]. If that is what Castle intend (if indeed they intend anything at all) then I would strongly suggest that they too find a term other than 'Open Source' to describe it.

[1] although requiring a royalty for some parts and releasing other parts as Open Source would be quite possible.
