As far as I know you wouldnt have a problem, but as soon as you alter the core files you have to make them publicly available.

As long as you are offering HOSTING services but not SELLING MAGENTO, it is 100% allowed.

Hi guys we are also looking at offering a hosted version of Magento. We would host it and support it (patch it etc and provide customers with phone support on how to use it etc) for a set monthly fee. I\’m guessing this is ok because we aren\’t charging for the code but how can we brand it? i.e. we can\’t call it hostedmagento.com right? There would be restrictions on using the name - can we call it something else but still use the word Magento? People would have to know what the underlying software is? Can we use the Magento logo? I\’m going through the other posts on here as well but couldn\’t see the answers to those questions.
