What would happen if I never buy Craft license and continue working in Craft CMS Pro trial ? Would the CMS be locked after some day or a error will show up on my website frontend ?

    Hey @ CraftCMS, could you please change your Stack Exchange user name? – carlcs Apr 20 '17 at 13:08

    Of course this would never happen because you're a good person that supports the work of good people :) – Matt Wilcox Apr 20 '17 at 15:54

They have answered this on the CraftCMS site: https://craftcms.com/support/license-enforcement

Edition Enforcement

Each time Craft phones home to check for updates, we check the incoming license to see which edition it should be running. That “licensed edition” is included in the response, which Craft compares against what is actually installed. If there’s a discrepancy, the Control Panel will display a modal window that provides options for correcting the situation.

You can locally, but launching the project into the wild, you will need a pro license.
