Re-distributing PyCharm

Hi there,

can I re-distribute PyCharm with my custom Python distro? Is this allowed?

I would basically unpack the installer, take the files and integrate in my bigger installer.

Thanks for all good work!

Hi,

there is a folder that comes with each PyCharm distribution - named "license".
There you can find all necessary information.

If you are about to re-distribution of PyCharm Professional Edition - you are not allowed to do that without prior written consent from JetBrains - PyCharm Professional Edition has EULA model:
license/PyCharm_license.txt:
"
4. GRANT OF LICENSE
...
(b) Licensee may not:
...
(i) sell, redistribute, encumber, give, lend, rent, lease, sublicense, or otherwise transfer Software, or any portions of Software, to anyone without the prior written consent of Licensor;

BUT

As far as you probably know we have PyCharm Community Edition - that is the free and open source edition of PyCharm. It has a different license - Apache 2.
Go to the same place in PyCharm Community Edition installation folder:
license/LICENSE.txt:
"
Apache License
Version 2.0, January 2004
