We are a small software company in Chennai, India. We want to resell Alfresco services under our own name. Right now we include the statement
"This software uses the Alfresco Content management System" in our modified software in the footer. We also provide the source code free to the users if they need it. We are eventually planning to go into bigger installations , so we want to be sure we are doing everything legally.

We have read the following GPL clause …

"For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software."

Are we legal ?
