We have been searching for a Html editor for couple of days, we have visited some editors too, but nothing fits our requirement, and then someone suggested us to use ContentTools WYSIWYG editor, which is really an excellent editor, we are even open to use paid version, but we can't see anything to pay for it, now we just want to confirm, if we integrate this editor in our pages, do we need to take care anything related to licencing, or any other legal issue. Our portal will not distributing this product(Editor) directly , but as our core business model, we sell ads on portal and making money in that way.
