I did manage to pass logic in college. However, I don't always do so well in
English. Let me restate what I meant:
Software that requires a registration fee is possible, and exists. Such
software cannot be considered Open Source, however. It is possible that upon
registering the software, the license could convert to an Open Source
license. From that point on, that copy and all derivatives of it cannot
require a registration fee and remain Open Source.
Does this make more sense?
