+The silx toolkit is a software library and one of its goals is not to impose any license to the end user.
+Silx follows the permissive MIT license although it may include contributions following other licenses not interfering with the previous goal. Detailed information can be found in the copyright file.
+Silx uses the Qt library for its graphical user interfaces.
+A word of caution is to be provided.
+If users develop and distribute software using modules accessing Qt by means of Riverbank Computing Qt bindings PyQt4 or PyQt5, those users will be conditioned by the license of their PyQt4/5 software (GPL or commercial).
+If the end user does not own a commercial license of PyQt4 or PyQt5 and wishes to be free of any distribution condition, (s)he should be able to use PySide because it uses the LGPL license.
