Copyright and License Terms
OWTChart is Open Source, which means that it can be used freely, for
personnal or commercial application, as long as the authors' Copyright
and Distribution terms are respected. It is based on the GDChart
library, which in turn uses Boutell.com's GD (GifDraw) library, so this
means 3 sets of Copyright and Distribution terms to follow.
The application part of OWTChart was developed by Daniel Morissette
(firstname.lastname@example.org), and part of it was done under contract with Health
Canada. It is covered by the following Copyright and Distribution terms:
