You're right. The license terms do not allow you to install FSL and offer it up to your customers. We haven't come across a situatioin such as yours. We'll need to discuss this further to see what we can do to accomodate you.

Subject: [FSL] Question about FSL licensing
I've tried to find a contact address on the FSL website
but failed, so apologies if this isn't the correct forum..
We're a not-for-profit HPC center in Melbourne and one
of our users from Melbourne University wants us to install
FSL for her.
Problem is that I'm worried that part 4 of the FSL license
will prevent us from helping her, it says:
# You are not permitted under this Licence to use
# this Software commercially. Use for which any
# financial return is received shall be defined
# as commercial use, and includes [...]
# (4) use of the Software to provide any service
# to an external organisation for which payment is
Our member universities pay a fixed price subscription
each year to cover all their usage - is that model acceptable
for this or are we disqualified from offering it here ?
All the best,
