It looks like Six Apart are moving toward an affiliate program where people recommending Movable Type will get a commission from anyone buying a license.
‘Many of you recommend Movable Type as the weblog platform of choice to your customers or clients. With our new reseller licenses, you’ll be able to make money each time you sell a copy of Movable Type. We’re planning to offer generous commissions for all of you who offer software and services on top of the Movable Type platform.’
There is no ETA on when the program will go live yet.
