" This database is for personal or business use only. You may not use this database for commercial purposes. "

I have come across this from a website. Is there anything wrong with this message. Because business or commercial seem referring to the same thing.

I got messed up !

I think it may mean you can't promote or advertise your company / goods whatever, to make yourself a profit, you are not allowed to trade using the database. But you can use it to help your business - get information or downloads etc.

"commercial purposes" means that you hope to gain (usually a monetary profit) from its use/distribution. with regard to software (where one most often sees this type of warning/message, it simply means you cannot make/sell copies of the the software.

"business purposes" means for use as a tool in your company (whose commercial ventures include selling products OTHER than the one where we find the warning!)

Perhaps the sites copywriter has confused
commercial (adj.) of commerce
with
commercial (n.) a broadcast advertisment
Very likely, when we say ' commercial purposes ' the commercial is sure an ' adj '.

In your opinion, the use of ' business use ' and ' commercial purposes ' in the same sentence is not contradictory ? Because they mean different things, right ?
this is correct ... a bit misleading perhaps. one might call "business" purposes "internal use" (but this sounds medical!).
