Seeking advice about PSICOV license compatibility with GPL-2
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Dear Team members!
PSICOV , a protein contact prediction tool, is built with a patched version of the GPL-2 Fortran source glasso :
gfortran -O3 psicov.c glasso_psicov.f90 -lm -lgsl -lgslcblas -o psicov
The license of PSICOV does not seem free to me , with restrictions on commercial use, e.g.:
"The Software may not be sold as a standalone package, or incorporated into
a commercial software package without the written permission of the Copyright
"The results produced by the Software may not be incorporated into any
data banks or databases which are subject to the payment of access or
license fees without the written permission of the Copyright holder."
"Incorporation of the Software into
a commercial Web site or other fee paying service is not allowed without
the written permission of the Copyright holder."
If I understand GPL well, this simply is not allowed: PSICOV is not allowed to restrict what is granted by glasso's license (and that does not
limit any of the above). The question is:
* Do I see it correctly that PSICOV's license violates the GPL-2 terms of glasso?
Thank you very much for your opinion in advance.
