Yes, but the gizmoproject is particularly onerous. Look at the EULA:
Michael Robertson is the head of that project, IIRC. Fairly nasty EULA
for using such "open" terms. Can't even redistribute the software.
As a bit of clarification, I'd like to note that I make no endorsement of
the gizmo _software_ which this EULA regards. It is instead that the
service with its SIP standard implementation that I enjoy. I was initially
a bit upset that their software was not open source, but as the major
alternative (skype) is both closed protocal and closed source, I choose the
lesser of two weevils.
