What about the AGPL license?
Free, but read the fine print
The iText AGPL license is for developers who wish to share their entire application source code with the open-source community as free software under the AGPL “copyleft” terms. As soon as you want to use iText in a closed source, proprietary environment, you have to purchase an iText commercial license of one of the types discussed above. You can read more on the AGPL license's terms and conditions here. As a rule, iText strongly believes in open-source and community development and trusts customers not to abuse the AGPL license. However, we will also not hesitate to pursue organizations or people who break the AGPL agreement or damage our brand.
