Dear Mr. Zhao,

GRASS is Free Software which means you can 
use, study, distribute and improve it.
This is is granted by the license (GNU GPL in GRASS' case)
any Free Software license comes gratis.
For Background see:


So you cannot buy a license for GRASS it already gives you one.

The result of GRASS is completely in your hands,
thus you can of course make business maps with GRASS.
