Neo4j Enterprise Open Source Frequently Asked Questions

YES, Neo4j Enterprise is open source under the AGPLv3 open source license created by the Free software foundation. View License. This is the same license used by Mondgo DB and many other open source projects. As long as you follow the open source license terms you are free to use it in any environment, for any purpose you wish. These terms simply ensure custom derivatives of Neo4j Enterprise are also themselves open source. US government agencies are restricted from making closed source software in most situations and do not try to create their own derivative (version) of Neo4j. Instead they use Neo4j as a server in a much larger enterprise architecture stack. AGPLv3 is a no-brainer for US government use cases! It's that simple!
Neo4j Enterprise can be used for free under the Free Software Foundation's GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 3.

There simply are none that we've ever run into.
The AGPL license ensures that if you make a derivative of Neo4j that you must ensure that you release the code of the derivative back to the community. That's it! It does not require you to release the tools, other applications, that connect and use Neo4j.
If you are capable of creating your own derivative of Neo4j, then you may want to Neo4j Inc - they may be hiring!
