I have a stupid question:
What is the license of TrackMate?

@tinevez Isn't that up to you and Dscho and @tpietzsch and any other contributors? If it does not say anywhere then probably would be good to discuss that. I am guessing Dscho at least assumed GPL. Lastly, did you check the LICENSES file in fiji/fiji for its opinion?
Also: does TrackMate depend on any copylefted components?

@tinevez If there should be any code that I wrote in there, I'm fine with whatever license you chose

@ctrueden Yes I checked the LICENSES file and TrackMate is not in. I think we simply did not set explicitly a license and that we do not know now.
I would like to have TrackMate LGPL (or something) to allow closed-source plugins to use its API.
But as you rightfully pointed, the TrackMate license might be determined by the components it depends on.
I will investigate.
@tpietzsch Thanks!
