They well do so as they offer cost based commercial licenced, so for a free but not FOSS software who knows what they'll say.

"The commercial edition is available for use in proprietary
software applications.  The standard licence is extremely flexible,
and a budget independent-developer licence is also available for
individuals working on low-cost applications.

With the
commercial edition you also obtain the source code with the right to
modify it if you desire, along with 12 months of updates. Optionally
at a small extra cost we can provide ready-to-use binary libraries for
Win32 and OS/X.

The commercial edition contains essentially the
same source code as the Free Software edition, but provides more
flexibility in build environment and library support, including
support for Intel Integrated Performance Primitives and Apple
Accelerate/vDSP frameworks as alternatives to FFTW and libsamplerate
(though you can also use these if you have commercial licenses for
