New License Description files - License description files are needed to create license stamps and report compatibility. We analyze licenses and create description files as a service. (You can create these files yourself, or obtain them from other suppliers as described at Extending LIDESC.)

License Stamps for software - Given a copy of software and the licenses, we can place appropriate stamps within all the files, and certify they are compatible with LIDESC software everywhere. You can then use and redistribute the software knowing that the stamps will be useful with LIDESC.

LIDESC enhancements and alternate licensing terms - The no-cost version of LIDESC is distributed under the GPL. We will enter written agreements which allow publishing under other license terms. We have developed additional LIDESC modules for indexing, cross-referencing, and CGI support.
