Oh it was like that!

You can use mybb for any project while you keep the license, don;t matter what you use it for.

I think that is how it works...

They can use your break to the license to sue you and close your project if you remove or change the license.

But you can wait for some team members or advance users to reply, as I'm not very sure what I'm talking about myself...

You can remove mybb copyright without problems btw.

You can use MyBB for whatever you want, but if you remove the copyright you won't be given support here.

MyBB is free open-source software. As pyridine already said, you can do whatever you want with it and run any kind of forum. But in order to receive help from us, you must comply with our Support Eligibility policy.
