In legal matters, this is not a good assumption. However, I once asked
about using Scheme48 for a commercial project. Perhaps this was before the
following paragraph appeared in the Scheme48 license:
Use of this software for commerical purposes is also
permitted, but only if, in addition to the conditions
required for non-commerical users, written notification of
such use is provided by the commerical user to NEC Research
Institute, Inc. (NECI) prior to the fabrication and
distribution of the software.
That seems pretty clear. Anyway, it is consistent with what I heard back a
year or more ago. I would send them a notice and tell them it is going to
appear on Debian CDs everywhere and is configured to produce the required
attribution by default. Then go ahead and put it in the main distribution.
