Yes, the netCDF software uses the copyright you have cited. That copyright is not really a "UCAR copyright", because UCAR licenses various software packages under different licenses. It is instead an "MIT-style" open-source license specific to Unidata netCDF software that encourages liberal use of netCDF, including commercial use. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: HXB-320851 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
