In contrast to the App Store, developers agreement for Windows Store App Catalog is allowed in the software under free licenses. A few days ago, Microsoft released a preliminary version of the App Developer Agreement. Item 3.g of this document is devoted to licensing agreements.
Conditions require that each developer selects the type of license and submits it to Microsoft. If he did not, then the program shall establish standard licensing terms.
Own the license must not contradict the standard conditions, except that if a free license for Open Source Initiative (GPL, Apache, etc.) is allowed to interfere with the fourth paragraph of Section 3 standard licenses (the prohibition on copying and distribution of the program).
Microsoft also points out that free software in the directory must be exactly the terms of a free software license, including the provision of source code, if specified. Microsoft will be closely monitored.
The cost of paid applications in Windows Store App should be in the range of $ 1.49 to $ 999.99, while Microsoft takes 20% to 30%, depending on the accumulated sales volume.
