Releasing a library that uses Syncfusion controls under MIT license

Hi. Would it be OK to release a library that uses syncfusion controls from nuget.org as long as the license keys or any syncfusion files are not distributed / included in the source code?

What should we explicitly say in our documentation? Is there any page that has details about this matter?

In order to allow Syncfusion to be used in an open-source project, we would need to put a Master License Agreement (MLA) in place. The Master License Agreement would have certain limitations.   

These limitations include, but are not limited to:  

  • You  are required to make it clear, in a license, to anyone obtaining your code, that they need to independently obtain dependencies (our product) from us whether under a community, commercial, or other license.  
  • You will not be able to license our binaries as part of the open-source project. 
  • The project can only be licensed under MIT, Apache, or BSD licenses. The project cannot be licensed under GPL or similar licenses.

A full list of limitations will be set forth in the Master License Agreement. If this works for you and your team, please let me know and I will start drafting the Agreement.  

Best Regards,

Syncfusion Legal Team.
