Does a university count as non-commercial?

Depends how and what it is being used for.

Good point. People here are starting to ask which RSS client they should be using. That includes students, staff and faculty.

At present, we don't have any services that provide an RSS feed, but that will probably be changing soon: we are developing a web app that notifies users about system changes and events.

So, if our users want to use Awasu to get messages from this new service, can they do it without purchasing Awasu? Does it depend on their status as a student, staff or faculty?

Thanks!

It's not so much a question of their title as what they are using Awasu for. If someone just wants something to read Slashdot, Wired and a bunch of comics, then that's personal use, whether it's at home or at the office.

But if you're using it for anything work related, then that is commercial use. This covers things such as journalists or researchers monitoring news, a company wanting to keep tabs on what it's competitors are doing, or a university that has a web app that notifies users about system changes and events :-)

However, we offer discounts on bulk purchases of licenses so send us an email and I can give more details. Since you're a university, we can probably come up with an attractive deal.
