Is it legal to develop a ASP.NET and C#.NET website using Visual Studio 2010 Standard or Express edition? or do i have to buy some licence? This website will contain commercial ads for money making.

So long as you're not using pirated software then it's perfectly legal.

  • Thanks. Express edition is for free download. Now is it legal?
