Source code header

If you look into the source code of iText, you'll see that most files contain a header referring to the AGPL.

Producer line

When using iText 7 Community under AGPL, you must retain the producer line in every PDF that is created or manipulated using iText.

You can be released from the requirements of the license by purchasing a commercial license. Buying such a license is mandatory as soon as you develop commercial activities involving the iText software without disclosing the source code of your own applications. These activities include:

  • offering paid services to customers as an ASP,
  • serving PDFs on the fly in a web application,
  • shipping iText with a closed source product.
