    Ubuntu Service

    I'm just wondering what the laws are on putting Ubuntu (or other Linux distributions) on old computers as a 'pocket money' service?

    I'm not yet 18, this would only be for some extra cash.

    Regards

    The laws change from country to country, but I doubt you'll get in trouble, it's like cleaning your neighbor's car for a tip, not exactly illegal.

    Ubuntu's licence doesn't restrict you from doing this in any way. There's nothing wrong with charging for Linux. You're providing a useful service, if people are willing to pay you then go for it.

    I do however believe you have to put the license document on the computers

    Every one of the various pieces of software that makes up Ubuntu includes the licence for that package, so that's taken care of.
