# Paid Licensing for Valkyrior

## 0. Preamble
So, I get it, not everyone is a free software activist who wants to contribute
their code back to the Valkryior system.  If you don't want to abide by the
AGPL, one of the wonderful things about it being a one-woman ship is I can re-
license my own code as I like.  This file represents the paid license of the
Valkyrior project.  If you do not want to abide by the GNU AGPLv3 (or a later
version of the same license), then you must abide by this license.
