We are currently looking for options to implement discussion forum in our customer's sites. We think that JForum would be extremely good candidate. You license agreement says in download page the following:
" The current version of JForum is the result of years of work of many people, who have spent thousands of hours developing the software.

JForum has its source code open under the terms of the BSD license, which basically states that you can use and customize JForum without any cost.

Although, you are required to maintain full credits to the project, and we sincerely ask you to link back to us whenever possible. "

So, my question is, what it means '...when ever possible' ? Is there some strict rules that we have to obey and how we should link back to you site? We are making B2B site implementations and might enter up to a situation that this linking back is impossible due to restriction of our clients corporate policies etc. Can we still integrate Your product in these installations?

Best regards,
Jani Lall
