Java Fine Print is released under the BSD License . I'm not a lawyer, but as I understand it, this means you can use, copy, integrate, distribute, modify, sell, or do anything else you want to with this code. All that I ask is that you propagate the copyright header in the source code and if you do anything really interesting, let me know [jdblack at users dot sourceforge dot net / or use the project forums]. Of course regardless of what's said here, the BSD License is the sole license governing Java Fine Print.
