I would like to know if the Nangate Open Cell Library License, Version

prohibition clause for commercial use, but, not for academic/research
Please do let me know,
While I am a non-authoritative source, this strikes me as non-free,
and thus not acceptable for Fedora.
It continuously refers to not being suitable for commercial use, but
in reality I see no prohibition against commercial use.
What strikes me as non-free is that it prohibits or restricts benchmarking.
Freedom 0 requires that you must be able to use the software for any
purpose and in any manner, and the restriction on benchmarking clearly
runs afoul of that tenet.
