Licenses for data formats:

MapWinGIS itself is licensed under MPL, which is perhaps isn't too restrictive for most developers. However this doesn't apply to all the data sources that MapWinGIS uses.

Specifically MapWinGIS doesn't grant you any exclusive rights to use data from online services, tile map services in particular. It's universally known that OpenStreetMap is "free" but many others are not or only if your app comply with specific license agreement. If you are going to use those, you should check the licenses. See more information here.

Also MapWinGIS provides access to some of the data formats that have licenses different from that of the project itself (currently MRSid, NetCDF, ECW, probably some others in the future). Make sure to check Licenses folder of MapWinGIS installation for their respective licenses.
