Linked projects

When building the Python interface, the library links against the Boost numpy libraries. This project is also available under the Boost software license.

The used libraries OpenCV, Jinja2 and CppHeaderParser are all also BSD licensed.

The EIGEN version 3 library uses the MPL2 license, which is a copyleft license. In short, you may distribute the programs built with it in any way (non-commercial or commercial), as long as you notify the users where they can find the source code.

Caffe itself is also available under the BSD 2-clause license. However, it has a lot of dependencies:

All in all, the library including its linked parts are usable in all scenarios.
