[netCDF #TWY-871356]: License question

Hi Andrew,

> We have downloaded NetCDF binary distributions (Windows and Linux)
> from the following location.
> https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/downloads/netcdf/netcdf-3_6_1/index.jsp
> This is because we are evaluating the use of NetCDF format in our software.
> However these binary distributions do not come with any statement
> on licensing. Can you tell me under what license the binaries are
> distributed? I am assuming as as there is no license attached to the
> download, then they are effectively public domain. Is this the case?

No, it is our intention to have all netCDF software covered by the same 
license as the source distributions:


If the copyright notice is not included in a binary distribution, that's
an inadvertent omission on our part.
