BBBS is not, nor has ever been, public domain or free software. You must

There are two different licenses for BBBS: commercial and noncommercial.
You may use noncommercial license only if your BBS is free for all users
(new and old ones) and it is public for everybody to log in. You must use
commercial license if you use BBBS in a company for internal or external
mail or file transfer purposes, or you run a support BBS for a company or
it's products. In short: if you get money from it then it's commercial.
One license for BBBS is valid only in one system, which may contain one
or more computers physically connected to each other all the time via
LAN. You may not use one license in two physically separated systems,
i.e. in two different offices of one company.
In the event that you are in violation of this license agreement you
agree and accept that the authors may cancel your registration and any
rights to use BBBS that you may have.
In doubt contact the authors.
One BBBS node can handle one concurrent connection. One connection means
one phone call, one telnet session, one HTTP request, etc. See the table
below for current prices in euros (EUR) and US dollars (USD).

the difference * 1.1. For example, if you want to upgrade from 2 node
noncommercial license to 12 node noncommercial license the price in
euros is (83 - 50) * 1.1 = 36.30 EUR. Fill in new registration form
when you want to upgrade.
