Glom is Open Source and Free Software, released under the GPL License . It uses the PostgreSQL database, which is under the BSD Open Source license

This means, among other things, that

* You are free to use Glom without licensing costs, for as many users as you like.
* You may view and modify the Glom source code, or you may pay someone else to do that.
* Many organisations may offer support, so you are not dependent on one vendor.
* If you modify the source code and distribute the resulting software, you should share the source modifications.

This does not mean that your Glom-based database systems must be open source, just as a document created with OpenOffice does not need to be open souce.

Glom uses many open source libraries from the GNOME project.
