Last week I was blocked from using TV because I was suspected of using it commercially …I talked to a sales rep and I told her I help this friend with outlook then the rep asked if she used it to check work email when I said I assume so she immediately said that is commercial use. Really! I have read your definition of commercial and private use, not being lawyer, I had difficulty understanding the legalese, but finally determined the only people that can legally use your free software are those who no longer have a paying job, on either end of the connection. Makes “free” useless since I am convinced there isn’t a person in the world who does not check their “work” email from home.
I used TV perhaps 2-3 times since Jan 2019 for a total of less than 10 hrs (I assume you can check if that’s true). I love using TV but Cannot justify spending $500 a year for so little use.
To make it simple and comprehensible and make everyone legal I propose this:
Don’t try to determine commercial or private use.
Free software has limited use …say 10hrs a month
Free Software is limited to basics…no bells and whistles…like file transfer, etc
Another thought ……Perhaps a lower yearly fee for the “dumbbed down” version (time limit, basics), say $100 or less with no free version.
