Incorrect. ssh requires commercial users to pay for licenses, and said
licenses are _not_ cheap.


ssh is under the GNU Public license. The only license you could *ever*
need would be RSAref. If you read the RSAref license closely, it allows
you to use it for non-commercial, or internal commercial, use.

Basically you can use ssh for just about anything you want except letting
customers connect to your service, as far as I can see. Note that in the
US, you have to use ssh with RSAref in order not to violate patents.
