Hi,

It’s modified MIT so MIT is sort of right.

The pom contains:
    <licenses>
        <license>
            <name>MIT</name>
            <url>http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT</url>
            <distribution>repo</distribution>
            <comments>The software shall be used for good, not evil.</comments>
        </license>
    </licenses>

But the full license text is here. [1]

Also interesting to note FSF consider it non free [2]

Thanks,
Justin
