GnuCash is licensed under the GPL, which means that it is freely
modifiable and redistributable, however IF you redistribute it you
need to make the sources available, and if you make any modifications
you need to make those modifications available as well.

You are allowed to make any modifications you wish, but you must make
your modifications available in source form.

The cost is that any changes you make must also be distributed.
Please familiarize yourself with the GPL License.
