Are Joinup hosted projects “non-commercial” (program downloaded “for free”, free of licensing charges)?

No, everyone has the right to sell copies, or to ask for a contribution. Services (training, implementation, support etc.) are nearly never for free. Some licences (like the EUPL) states that the licence is “royalty free”, meaning that the licensor will not try to manage “permanent royalties” depending on the number of users, of computers, the country where it is distributed etc. However, they are other commercial business models than managing royalties. In addition, according to their relevant open source licences, the software available on Joinup can be used for any purpose, including commercial activities”.
