1998.08.24 15:20 "TIFF and GeoTIFF licensing issues", by Roberto Lattuada


I would like to know how a company wishing to use libtiff and libgeotiff in one of their producs should behave.

I am sure lots of small and big companies out there have done it already so maybe you don't mind sharing your experience with me. Yes, I am aware of the Copyright notice in the software. I am also interested in knowing what to do if the libraries need to be (heavily) modified, would a note saying that they are based on the original libraries from such and such suffice?
