Thanks for your inquiry Amit.

Samba is Free Software:

developed in collaboration by many engineers
in many countries, some of whom work for companies
and some do not.

Like Linux, it is not available as proprietary
software or under any other license than GPLv3.

If you have any questions about using Samba
in proprietary products (which many companies
already do successfully, such as Google and
IBM) - but still under the terms of the GPl
of course, then feel free to contact me directly
and we can take the discussions from there.
