Sorry for the omission. Please see the summary below:

"The Internet Communications Engine (Ice) is a modern alternative to 
object middleware such as CORBA™ or COM/DCOM/COM+. Ice is easy to learn, 
yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical 
applications. Ice shines where technologies such as SOAP or XML-RPC are 
too slow, or do not provide sufficient scalability or security.

Ice is free software, available with full source, and released under the 
terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Commercial licenses are 
available for customers who wish to use Ice for closed-source software."
