comment Does using the Telegram API mandate releasing the source code under a GPL license?
I'm advising not to close this question. Because in the help center says if my question is about software licensing I should ask it here and I did! How many worthwhile questions about software licensing can you imagine which do not involve some interpretation?

P.S. I used the Telegram name to describe the context in which my question has happened, which could help the people who want to help, in providing a proper answer.

Thanks for the recommended reading. I hadn't seen it before. Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think my question can be considered secifically as customer support question. Although I can ask the company to answer this question for me, I think the question is more generic and about the tags I used: open-source, GPL and free-software.

core.telegram.org/api/terms-of-use The terms of use sound quite vague to me. It says you can take money for delivery in the 7th clause, but in 6th it says you cannot use it in a commercial structure to maximize shareholder value. It sounds more emotional than logical. They also say that their "real terms of use, with lawyer speak and all" is not ready yet! so should I wait for the clarification?
