No. ModSecurity for Apache will always be free. ModSecurity Pro is
just another name for ModSecurity + Certified ModSecurity Rules +
binaries (starting with v2) + support. I have big plans for
ModSecurity but for them to come true ModSecurity needs to start
paying my bills.
Hopefuly there will be a revenue stream coming from the organisations
that can afford to licence ModSecurity. Another might come from
ModSecurity Console (which will not be free).

In that case I'd be happy to sell you a couple of licences :)
