Eh, for reference, this is the copyright that was in the package I

| Copyright:
| JpGraph is released under a dual license.  QPL 1.0 (Qt Free Licensee)
| for non-commercial, open-source and educational use and JpGraph
| Professional License for commercial non-opensource use.
| Basically it means that if you or your company develops non open
| source software and have financial gains, either directly or
| indirectly (for example by improving a business process), by using
| JpGraph this counts as commercial use.
