We were reviewing our packages licenses and found this
weird license agreement. It's non free because you have
to send back your changes.

Worth noticing though.

Monkey's Audio Source Code License Agreement

License Agreement

1. The Monkey's Audio SDK and source code can be freely used to add APE format playback, encoding, or tagging support to any product, free or commercial.  Use of the code for proprietary efforts that don't support the official APE format require written consent of the author.

2. Monkey's Audio source can be included in GPL and open-source software, although Monkey's Audio itself will not be subjected to external licensing requirements or other viral source restrictions.

3. Code changes and improvements must be contributed back to the Monkey's Audio project free from restrictions or royalties for the sake of the common good, unless exempted by express written consent of the author.

4. Any source code, ideas, or libraries used must be plainly acknowledged in the software using the code.

5. Although the software has been tested thoroughly, the author is in no way responsible for damages due to bugs or misuse. 

6. If you do not completely agree with all of the previous stipulations, you must cease using this source code and remove it from your storage device.
