Can the iGoogle framework be licensed? Chris.M 8/10/09 2:34 PM
My company is looking to create a content site that would in no way be competitive with iGoogle. Can the iGoogle framework be licensed for a reasonable price?

Although iGoogle itself isn't available for licensing, you're free to build an OpenSocial container that takes advantage of the OpenSocial platform. For more information, see the link below to the API documentation and feel free to ask questions in the OpenSocial forum.

If I understand correctly, Opensocial would allow us to create apps that could be used on a variety of websites, but wouldn't give use the ability to create a user customizable portal like iGoogle.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Correct Chris, OpenSocial is a gadget framework, not a page framework. Google doesn't currently offer an API for personalized pages.

Hi, I noticed that this was posted back in 2009.  I just wanted to verify whether it is still the case that iGoogle cannot be licensed.  Our company would be interested in using iGoogle internal to our firewall.
