I'd also recommend closely examining the license for any TM libraries
that ship with the program, with a focus on the providence of the  libra
ry.

Whilst it has been several years since I've used a TM library, when I
did, the licenses were, under Debian Guidelines, non-free. Back then, I
didn't look at licenses, to see if they complied with Apache Guidelines.

About fifteen years ago, I was on the fringes of a lawsuit involving a
TM library. All intellectual property rights of the TM Library belonged
to the developers of the software program, even though the words in the
TM Library were either deliberately selected by the licensed user of the
software program, or came from parsing content that was created, and to
whom all intellectual property rights apparently were owned, by the user
of the software program.
