In keeping with this aim, Nona makes a promise to the community regarding its trademarked software:

As a 501 (c) (3) public-benefit organization, the Nona Research Foundation does not face the same constraints as academic institutions in clearing the rights for software or contributing them to the public domain. Nona will never make any of its trademarked software proprietary. Everyone will have access to be the full set of open source tools available.
