This unfortunately is not satisfactory.  See on the main JpGraph page
the actual license grant:

] 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 use.
] Basically it means that if you or your company develops non open

] JpGraph this counts as commercial use.

So if you are IBM, say, and you get any financial gain because you use
JpGraph to prepare reports, then you are a "commercial use", and you
are not allowed to distribute under the QPL.
