Where can I find the file that describes the ngraph license?

We previously asked about licensing from the following page.


https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-Distribution-of-OpenVINO/Is-there-a-table-that-summarizes-these-possible-third-party/m-p/1481351/emcs_t/S2h8ZW1haWx8dG9waWNfc3Vic2NyaXB0aW9ufExIMFYxSzQ1VU5NVFNKfDE0ODEzNTF8U1VCU0NSSVBUSU9OU3xoSw#M29354

In that thread, <install_root>/deployment_tools/ngraph was also mentioned that redistribution for commercial use is under the EULA.
However, I could not find such a statement anywhere in the license files.
We would appreciate it if you could tell us where it is written.

The DLLs and environment used have not changed from previous questions.
Thank you in advance for your response.

I am contacting you with an additional question.

I am currently developing a program in windows,c++,
As for the libraries that we have incorporated into our (somewhat large) exe files via static links,
Is there any possibility of redistribution?

The static libraries used are
・C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\openvino_2021.4.752\deployment_tools\inference_engine\lib\intel64\Release\inference_engine_c_api.lib
C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\openvino_2021.4.752\deployment_tools\inference_engine\lib\intel64\Release\inference_engine_ transformations.lib
C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\openvino_2021.4.752\deployment_tools\inference_engine\lib\intel64\Release\inference_engine.lib

It also reads the following header file
・C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\openvino_2021.4.752\deployment_tools\inference_engine\include\inference_engine.hpp

Please also tell us where in the license file it is written

Again, we will not redistribute these files directly, but will incorporate them into an exe and then distribute that exe for commercial use.
Please confirm the information.

The license(\openvino_2021.4.752\licensing\EULA.txt) file contains the following language

1.4 “Redistributables” means any Intel copyrighted Toolkit component identified in an accompanying text file (i.e. redist.txt) as redistributable.

The only text file I could find is \openvino_2021.4.752\licensing\deployment_tools/redist.txt, which only mentions the evaluetion license and not the Single Named-User License Type I was told I was using. I was told that I am using Single Named-User License Type.
(Just to be sure, am I correct with the Single Named-User License Type?)

Where can I find the license for the above static library?
Tell us about it too.

Hello anony,

The license details for nGraph is available here:

https://github.com/NervanaSystems/ngraph/blob/master/LICENSE

Thank you.
However, just as openvino downloaded from github and openvino downloaded from intel are two different things, I am not aware that ngraph is the same as the one on github.
Is apeche-2.0 OK for the ngraph folder in the following folders of the openvino installer?
Also, I would appreciate it if you could answer the other two questions.

In summary, I have three questions.

①Is it possible to statically link the following to our software of a certain scale and redistribute it with EULA applied?

② Where are the license file indicating the license of "\openvino_2021.4.752\deployment_tools\inference_engine\lib\intel64\Release\" and redist.txt? (I don't think it's shown in "\openvino_2021.4.752\licensing\deployment_tools/redist.txt", but basically \inference_engine\lib\intel64\Release\ can be considered EULA applied?)

③ Where is the ngraph license file downloaded from the intel installer?

I apologize for asking multiple questions in the same thread.
Thank you.

Hello anony,

We’ve obtained reply from the relevant team.

 

Official releases of Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit are under “Single Named-User License” type.

Pre-release versions (generally available in GitHub as dev versions) are under Evaluation license. Therefore, since you downloaded your Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit from download page, your license is a “Single Named-User License” type.

 

Next, all runtime files that are part of the official release are redistributable. 

If you want to re-distribute OpenVINO™ Runtime, you should re-distribute Intel® OpenVINO™ Distribution License (EULA.txt).

If you want to re-distribute any other component of OpenVINO™, you should include the additional relevant license file as well. For example, for DL Streamer, you should add End User License Agreement for the Intel® Software Development Products (Intel_Software_Development_Products.txt). Please refer to the section “Included in This Release” in Release Notes for Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit 2021.4 LTS.

 

The nGraph license file is Apache_license.txt, and is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\openvino_2021.4.752\licensing\deployment_tools .

 

 

Regards,

Munesh
