If you decide to bundle umls, I would suggest verifying with the umls team - they do provide
a rest service to validate users license.

Thanks for your response. We want to bundle cTakes with UMLS resources and make it available
for commercial packages. But in UMLS license agreement, they have clearly mentioned it is
available for non-commercial purpose and available for individuals. Should I have to pay the
cost for using UMLS for commercial purpose ?

Yes. As per ASL 2.0, you can certainly include/embed Apache cTAKES in commercial products.
The actual cTAKES UMLS resources are a separate download.
Feel free to let us know if you have any questions/concerns.

for organizations ? I know cTakes comes under Apache license. Since cTakes also UMLS, will
there be any conflict in using it for organizations.
