LizardTech is now a business. They have a program for developers that they describe as follows:
The LizardTech Developer Program offers a range of MrSID Software Kits (SDKs) and development tools for integrating decode (viewing) capabilities and encoding technologies.
Decode SDKs for MrSID are provided free of charge for development. This allows developers to integrate viewing of MrSID into their applications.
If you are interested in joining our Developer Program, please fill out this form and someone will contact you shortly.
LizardTech will provide you with the tools you need to support viewing of MrSID and JPEG 2000 formats within your application. You will find downloadable C++ SDKs, technical notes and documentation and a link to get additional email support.
We encourage you to register, so you'll be the first to know when we add resources for developers.
