[Chimera-users] Question regarding 3D surface coordinates

Hi Chris,

  If you use Chimera for commercial purposes it requires a negotiated license.  If you use it for academic purposes then the academic license is online and you agree to it when you download the program.  So it depends on whether your iPhone app is “commercial” — probably that comes down to do you charge money for it.  If you think your use is a gray area then you should discuss it with the head of our lab, Tom Ferrin.
