GATK License and Redistributing in an AWS AMI
I have been asked to reach out to you to clarify the GATK license. We are hoping to package our CNV/SNP calling and annotation pipeline that includes GATK and make it available on an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for use on the Amazon EC2 cloud for anyone who wants to replicate our protocol using their own data. Of all the tools that we use, only GATK contains license restrictions. It is our intent that our AMI be used by academic/non-commercial users, and it is not intended to be sold. We can list the AMI in the AWS Marketplace as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) instance. However, there are no checks provided by Amazon that users do in fact have a license. Is this permissible?
