EFL comes with several licences. Different shared libraries are covered by different licenses, and are distributed here as an aggregation with a single build system. Listed below are the library/project names and the license file covering it. Note that this license would cover all of the source invovled in each project (src/lib/PROJECT, src/modules/PROJECT, src/bin/PROJECT data/PROJECT) unless specifically noted otherwise (eg epp in edje or lz4, libunibreak etc.), so please refer to these imported project sources for details (but be aware that the licensing of such libraries is compatible with the libraries that use them and is not more restrictive).
