Lynx is certainly known in India, as messages to lynx-dev have shown,
but we're all always pleased to see it more widely publicised.

Lynx is distributed subject to a GNU licence,
which roughly allows free use & copying,
provided it is never used in any kind of commercial or copyright software.
for full details of the licence, see the file COPYING in the package,
which you can obtain from www.slcc.edu/lynx/release/ .
the copyright is held by the University of Kansas (USA),
which would be responsible for any legal action against infringement.
perhaps there could be some question raised
if it appeared your company was profiting from adding Lynx to its CD,
but offsetting that is the difficulty many people in India might find
in downloading Lynx over slow Internet connections.
it may be basically a question for your consciences:
if you have any real worries, it's the U Kansas you should consult.
