a) The command-line program was developed by Richard Rost, and carries the following copyright:

The developer’s license requires that no fee will be charged for this program as is or modified.
b) The GUI was developed by MX Linux developers and is released under the GNU GPL v. 3 license, whose full text can be found both online and onboard. The core statement is as follows:
