Section 7 of the GPL-3 (if it's not -3, there's a clause in other versions of the GPL as well) / | All other non-permissive additional terms are considered “further | restrictions” within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you | received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is | governed by this License along with a term that is a further | restriction, you may remove that term. [ snip ] \ Sounds like you can ignore their non-commercial clause. I'm sure their legal team thinks this is A-OK by them. Cheers, Paul -- .''`.
