Description

The License for UCUM is not clear. Received several requests. Checked the specification itself and that does not say anything in the printed form.

There is a header in the source file saying:

Use and redistribution of this data is permitted without charge as long as you make no changes to it. DO NOT CHANGE THIS FILE if you want to redistribute it. Please contact Gunther Schadow at the Regenstrief Institute, Indianapolis, IN 46260 for any issues that make you think you need to change this file.

That is not enough. With the OGC MoU to be done we need to clarify this.

Clearly the intent is, and has always been, that UCUM would be as free as LOINC.
