Commercial Use

Hi All:

I?m working with a group who would like to use Matplotlib as part of a software solution for clinical interpretation of genomic data. Has anyone gone through similar processes? Are there any special licensing provisions for commercial use, or we all good?

Thanks!

Matplotlib and NumPy are both licensed similarly to Python, so commercial
use is fine. I think all of the major dependencies are BSD (the AGG
renderer) or LGPL (gtk, qt, etc.), so you should be good there, too.

Technically speaking, Continuum Analytics and Enthought both sell
commerical Python distributions that includes these packages without any
problems.

Cheers!

The biggest gotcha would be if you use `pyqt4` or `pyqt5` which are dual
licensed as commercial or GPL (you need to talk to riverbank about that),
however pyside / pyside2 are licensed as LGPL.

To be clear, I am not a lawyer.

If you plan to sell your software you really need to consult an IP lawyer
about these sorts of things. If you do not have one already, I suspect
that numfocus can refer you to counsel with open source experience.
