Licensing question: BIRT using com.lowagie.text v2.1.7 (aka iText)

Hello everyone,


I notice the BIRT runtime v4.6 uses com.lowagie.text_2.1.7_v201601250100.jar.  


There's a somewhat confusing re-branding of Lowagie and iText but I believe they're the same product.  On the iText site, there is a post that addresses using iText versions prior to their transition from open source to an AGPL license:




Is this of any concern? Should I be worried about using BIRT in my project?


Thanks in advance for any info
