+LICENSE
-The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK) was initially developed
-under contract to the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes
-of Health. ITK is partially derived from VTK and VXL, hence some code is
-copyrighted accordingly (see VTKCopyright.txt and VXLCopyright.txt).
-
-The copyright of most of the files in the "Utilities" subdirectory is held by
-third parties who allow to distribute this material under a license compatible
-with the one used by ITK. Please read the content of the subdirectories for
-specific details on those third-party licenses. You will also find details in
-the README.txt file under the "Copyright" subdirectory.
-
-Starting with its version ITK 3.6, The Insight Toolkit is distributed under the
-new and simplified BSD license approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI)
-[http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php].

-The main portions of the Insight Toolkit are copyrighted
-by the Insight Software Consortium and distributed freely
-under the terms listed in the file:
-
- ITKCopyright.txt
-
-The Toolkit contains code from third parties that have different
-copyrights.
-
-They are:
-
-
- 1) DICOMParser: Copyright by Matt Turek.
- Distributed under a BSD-Like license.
- [This work was funded by NLM so its copyright
- should probably be transfered to the ISC.]
-
- 2) AnalyzeDB.h: The Mayo Clinic aggreed to distribute this file
- with ITK. Point of contact: Vincent Magnotta.
- The file was moved to Utilities/itkExtHdrs
-
- 3) PixelData: GE Copyrights,
- Vincent is contacting the providers of this
- code too.
-
- 6) Netlib: Netlib is a conglomerate of packages. Each
- one having different copyrights and licenses.
- Here is a listing of what is included inside
- Utilities/vxl/v3p/netlib
-
- blas: From www.netlib.org/blas :
-
- FAQ: The reference BLAS is a freely-available software package.
- It is available from netlib via anonymous ftp and the World Wide Web.
- Thus, it can be included in commercial software packages (and has been).
- We only ask that proper credit be given to the authors.
-
-
- datapac: Written by James Filliben, National Bureau of Standars.
-
- Our understanding is that the US Government cannot hold
- copyrights, therefore we assume that this code is in the
- public domain.

- 7) The triangle.c/h and showme.c files have been removed.
- Their copyright/license was incompatible with
- ITK and their functionality was not needed.
- These removed the "itknetlib" library.
-
-
- 8) itk_hash_map: It has copyrights by SGI and HP, but the license
- is consistent with BSD-like. So we simply need
- to acknowledge those in our general copyright.
-
- 9) itkMersenneTwisterRandomVariateGenerator:
- Copyright: Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji Nishimura,
- Copyright: Richard J. Wagner
- under a BSD-Like license.
-
- 10) Code/Numerics/FEM/dsrc2c.c :
-
- Copyright: 1977 IMSL Inc, no license available.
- Stephen Aylward removed the specific functions
- in this file that were copyrighted by IMSL and
- replaced them with other functions available in
- netlib. The file is now cleared from copyright
- concerns.
-
-
- 11) Code/Numerics/cvsrmvend
-
- Copyright: Greg A. Woods
- "Freely distributable"
- I guess that counts as BSD...
- Easy to remove if it becomes a problem,
- This is just a script for making easier
- the CVS syncs of VXL.
-
- 12) Testing/Code/IO/itkIOHeaderTest.cxx:
-
- Copyright: National Library of Medicine.
- Actually this is created by the Tcl script
-
- Insight/Utilities/Dart/BuildHeadrTests.tcl
-
- A fix has been commited for this file.
-
-
- 13) Testing/Code/Numerics/NeuralNetworks:
-
- Copyright: CADDLab at UNC
- Fixed now in CVS --> ISC

-
-
- B) OpenJPEG : Universite Catholique de Louvain: BSD license

- C) NrrdIO : Gordon Kindlmann and University of Utah
- BSD-Like license. Clarifies that the original

-
-
- D) NIFTI : No copyright ?
- There is no mention of licensing nor copyright
- at the NIFTI Web site:
-
- http://nifti.nimh.nih.gov/nifti-1

- its subdirectory matlibs it has a GPL license.
- The matlibs subdirectory is not included in ITK.
-
- The subdirectory jlibs is public domain
- The subdirecotry clibs is public domain
