Do I need to purchase a license to use Sourcetree?

Hi. I'm just about to use Sourcetree. And I have a question about it.




 When installing SourceTree, the license term says above. Do I need to purchase a license(paying bills) rather than just free registeration? Still, the QnA just says SourceTree is free and I'm confused about this.


And one more thing. Is my copyright of the project protected when I register 'free' on SourceTree? If there is any harm about this, please let me know.


Thank you for reading! Hope you have a Good day laugh

The license contains some old language, but SourceTree is definitely free.

See: Atlassian website says SourceTree is free. License says otherwise..

I'm fairly sure that nothing in the agreement impacts your intellectual property rights to your own code in any way - Atlassian couldn't possibly stay in business if they claimed ownership of code people developed using their tools.
