I am wondering and do not see anywhere if this is able to be used for business? Either purchased/donated. Are there any options without over stepping legal boundaries?

Thanks all!

I am using it happily for my business since 3 years. There is no legal issue. Details about the license situation are pointed out by @ratrace in his comment.

Someone used closed-sourced software from b.g.'s office and for 20 years successfully...:-) The author ask is there is clear permission for business to use it on many e-devices as possible and by many business workers as possible. And author did not ask for how long time someone successfully use this or that software.
