NPCAP COPYRIGHT / END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
Npcap is a Windows packet sniffing driver and library and is copyright
(c) 2013-2018 by Insecure.Com LLC ("The Nmap Project"). All rights
reserved.
Even though Npcap source code is publicly available for review, it is
not open source software and my not be redistributed without special
permission from the Nmap Project. The standard version is also
limited to installation on five systems. We fund the Npcap project by
selling two types of commercial licenses to a special Npcap OEM
edition:
1) Npcap OEM Redistribution License allows companies to redistribute
Npcap with their products.
2) Npcap OEM Internal Use License allows companies to use Npcap OEM
internally in excess of the free/demo version's normal 5-system
limitation.
Both of these licenses include updates and support as well as a
warranty. Npcap OEM also includes a silent installer for unattended
installation. Further details about Npcap OEM are available from
https://nmap.org/npcap/oem/, and you are also welcome to contact us at
sales@nmap.com to ask any questions or set up a license for your
organization.
Free and open source software producers are also welcome to contact us
for redistribution requests. However, we normally recommend that such
authors instead ask your users to download and install Npcap themselves.
If the Nmap Project (directly or through one of our commercial
licensing customers) has granted you additional rights to Npcap or
Npcap OEM, those additional rights take precedence where they conflict
with the terms of this license agreement.
Since the Npcap source code is available for download and review,
users sometimes contribute code patches to fix bugs or add new
features. By sending these changes to the Nmap Project (including
through direct email or our mailing lists or submitting pull requests
through our source code repository), it is understood unless you
specify otherwise that you are offering the Nmap Project the
unlimited, non-exclusive right to reuse, modify, and relicence your
code contribution so that we may (but are not obligated to)
incorporate it into Npcap. If you wish to specify special license
conditions or restrictions on your contributions, just say so when you
send them.
