Can I sell a software that uses this component?

I know that my question suggests that I didn't read the license, but I did.
However it isn't clear if I can sell any software that I make and that uses this component as i'm supposed to keep this license and this one is free of charge..

So, my question is if i can chage for a software made by me that uses this component or i can only distribute that software free of charge as wel as this component is distributed freee of charge?

Tuank you very much!

ZXing.Net is licensed under the same license than the original java based zxing.
So the same rules applies.
Please take a look at

I'm not a lawyer but here is a small conclusion how I understand the license:
You can build commercial apps with ZXing.Net.
You don't have to pay for ZXing.Net. You can use a different license for your app.
You can modify the source of ZXing.Net for your needs. You don't have to
open the source code of your app.
You should add a mention to your app that you use ZXing.Net (f.e. in a about or help page)
with a link to the project page and the license.

Feel free to make a donation if you earn a lot of money with your app. ;)
