The Tecgraf products under this license are: IUP, CD and IM.
All the products under this license are free software: they can be used for both academic and commercial purposes at absolutely no cost without affecting the license of the application. There are no paperwork, no royalties, no GNU-like "copyleft" restrictions, either. Just download and use it. They are licensed under the terms of the MIT license reproduced below, and so are compatible with GPL and also qualifies as Open Source software. They are not in the public domain, PUC-Rio keeps their copyright. The legal details are below.
The spirit of this license is that you are free to use the libraries for any purpose at no cost without having to ask us. The only requirement is that if you do use them, then you should give us credit by including the copyright notice below somewhere in your product or its documentation. A nice, but optional, way to give us further credit is to include a Tecgraf logo and a link to our site in a web page for your product.
The libraries are designed, implemented and maintained by a team at Tecgraf/PUC-Rio in Brazil. The implementation is not derived from licensed software. The library was developed by request of Petrobras. Petrobras permits Tecgraf to distribute the library under the conditions here presented.
Some of the secondary libraries in IUP, CD and IM use third party libraries that have different license terms. Almost all third party libraries although different their licenses are compatible with this license and can be used for both academic and commercial purposes without affecting the license of the application. BUT some of these third party libraries are GPL based or not free for commercial applications. The respective IUP, CD and IM secondary libraries that use these restricted libraries follow their license terms, so are also restricted. These libraries are:
cdpdf + PDFLib (not free for commercial applications) im_fftw + FFTW (GPL)
