What HashiCorp’s license change means for our customers

HashiCorp recently announced a change in their product licenses, excluding direct competitors from using their source code or distributing newer versions of Terraform. However, this change will not affect current versions of Terraform. Despite the legality of this move, it raises questions about the ethics of open source software. HashiCorp claims that competitors are taking advantage of their innovations, but competition has led to much innovation in the industry. It’s important to remember that HashiCorp’s products rely on contributions from unpaid individuals and the open source community. The impact of this license change will become clearer as updates are provided.
