The NMRScopeB plugin into jMRUI is distributed as a component of jMRUI and its use is subject to holding a valid jMRUI license.  It is available for free for non-for-profit use and cannot be redistributed or/and modified with the exception for the third party software as stated below. The software shall at no time be used for commercial or industrial purposes without an appropriate license.

Third party software licenses

The computational core of the NMRScopeB 2.0 plug-in has been developed using Python  2.7. Python has an open source license  (see Python website).

NMRScopeB uses Java FreeHEP libraries from the FreeHEP VectorGraphics package to which the GNU LGPL license apply. Users are allowed to modify the FreeHEP VectorGraphics package under the GNU LGPL license. For the purpose of debugging these modifications, the users are allowed to use reverse engineering.
