Frog is governed by a flexible licensing model that gives free of charge access to Wyplay’s technologies source code. Licensees can -but are not obliged to- contribute back their modifications, and redistribution of their derivatives is free for non-commercial purposes. Commercial deployment is subject to the terms of the Frog License Agreement, including a very competitive per-device royalty with cumulated volume discounts.

All members of the Frog Community are incentivized to contribute to the common platform’s code. Once integrated, contributions are maintained by Wyplay and other Frog licensees can build upon them. The original contributor directly benefits from lower maintenance costs by avoiding a fork. Indirectly, contributors also benefit from greater visibility and demonstrable expertise in the Frog platform. The contribution-driven nature of the Frog roadmap allows all Licensees to benefit from a greater speed to market and lower costs for new features.
