I can see the source code is licensed using SS-PL - does this include the referenced dll's?

We don't want to get into the situation where we are in breach of some licensing conditions because it isn't currently mentions anywhere (that I can see).

In general, the referenced DLLs are NOT licensed under SS-PL. Note for example that MSDDSP.DLL is included in the DLLs folder. This is a Microsoft DLL that is covered by the Windows and/or Visual Studio EULA.

If you have a specific scenario in mind, we can contact the copyright holders for any of the DLLs, all of whom are generally quite reasonable about derivative works.
