Ghostscript was originally written by L. Peter Deutsch in 1986 for the
GNU Project, and released under the GNU General Public License; later,
Deutsch formed Aladdin Enterprises to license Ghostscript under a
proprietary license. Ghostscript is currently owned by Artifex
Software and maintained by Artifex Software employees and the
worldwide user community. The current version of Ghostscript is again
available under GPL but Ghostscript can be also licensed for use in
proprietary projects for a fee.
