I believe Ice has a dual license, i.e., one for open-source projects
and one for closed-source projects.  Here's the quote from the zeroc

"Ice is free software, available with full source, and released under
the terms of GNU General Public License (GPL).  Commercial licenses
are available for customers who wish to use Ice for closed-source

> And TAO is total free.:)

TAO has a single open-source license
<www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/TAO-copying.html> that is the same whether
you use it with open-source or closed-source software.

Take care,
