Stanford Computer Graphics Laboratory
General Software License (in use 2007-)

From 1995 until mid-2007, software distributed by our laboratory, but not covered by a package-specific software license, was covered by a custom-written General Software License. In an effort to simplify our licensing terms and facilitate the widest possible use of our software, as of August 23, 2007 we have switched to the BSD license for all future downloads of our software.

As before, this license covers whichever programs or software packages (henceforth referred to as Software) whose associated web pages include a link to this web page. By downloading this Software, you agree to be bound by the following legal agreement between you, the Recipient, and Stanford University. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not download or use the Software. This license is identical (except for the year and name of the organization) to the 3-clause BSD license, as described in this Wikipedia article and this Open Source Initiative web page.

In addition to this Agreement, particular programs or software packages may impose additional restrictions, or may relax some of the restrictions stated above. These modifications will be stated on the web page associated with each program or package.
