Hi,

i felt in love with ci 6 Monts ago. I wrote some CRUD-Applications and now i think about to sell the libraries,controllers,models and views i wrote.

I dont want to violate the CI-Licence and want to know how i could sell my CRUD-Application.
Is it allowd to release the library on a licence like lgpl or crypt it with ioncube ?

Apparently you haven't searched the forums well enough... and if you've read the license, well the answers are there too.

Product
something that is produced, result of manufacturing; goods, merchandise; (Mathematics) result obtained by multiplying quantities together.

Merchandise
trade, buy and sell goods; plan for and promote the sales of, market goods (also merchandize)

Side note: Derek Allard made a invoice system called Bamboo Invoicing so they seem to promote us to sell the product of CodeIgniter.

...

Seriously now, "for any purpose" would presumably include "in exchange for money" - wouldn't you think?
