I'm sure when the OpenROAD team started developing they fitted that condition but now things are getting bundled up and people can (already are?) use OpenLANE for commercial purposes with no knowledge that they're violating the original license terms.
A major caveat it that I know practically nothing about the intricacies of software license laws but at first glance I feel like it's something someone should double check. Hopefully it's just my misunderstanding.
SoPlex is distributed under the ZIB Academic License. You are allowed to retrieve SoPlex for research purposes as a member of a non-commercial and academic institution.
If you want to use SoPlex commercially or if you are interested in maintenance and support, please contact I²DAMO GmbH.
so that might explain that, not so sure about SoPlex though
