From: Michael Unser <michael.unser@epfl.ch>

[...] we are happy that Fiji distributes our software: you have
my formal authorization for this (in my quality of lab chief).
"You'll be free to use this software for research purposes,  but you
must not transmit and distribute it without our consent":  this means
that from now on, you are authorized to distribute any ImageJ pluging
listed at http://bigwww.epfl.ch/algorithms.html since you have our
consent.

See the Fiji LICENSES file for details.
