Conflicting license for Adeona?
(Please CC me on your responses)
I was looking at Adeona  and considering ITPing  it but then noticed
that the license  was a bit weird.
Under "TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION",
it's using the GPLv2, so that's fine.
However, under "TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR USE" it's got the following:
"This program is offered "AS IS". Any use of this program is entirely at
the user's own risk."
which I think is fine and maybe even redundant since the GPL already covers
something like that.
But then, it also says this:
"Any output from this program is intended for informational, research and
evaluation purposes only."
which seems to disagree with DFSG#6 but also with the GPL since it's,
perhaps unintentionally, adding a restriction against commercial uses of the
Does anybody have any thoughts on this?
(I haven't emailed the university about it, I wanted to discuss it here
