I picked the following up from 

Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute,
study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it refers to four
kinds of freedom, for the users of the software: 

* The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). 
* The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs
(freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. 
* The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom
* The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the
public, so that the whole community benefits. (freedom 3). Access to the
source code is a precondition for this. 


``Free software'' does not mean ``non-commercial''. A free program must be
available for commercial use, commercial development, and commercial
distribution. Commercial development of free software is no longer unusual;
such free commercial software is very important.

I would like to use GPG in a corporate (for profit) setting. Can someone
give me a definitive answer to the question:

Will this be legal??
