The COPYING file says:

And in case you wonder, the whole ZJStream
protocol is open so a GPL driver could have
been written. Link can be found on the
foo2zjs homepage.

It depends on jbigkit, which is allegedly patent encumbered.


Of which half of them is expired already, some of
them are pending (they aren't valid yet) and for the rest
(which _might apply_, not known apply) HP and
Konica/Minolta must have payed the bill already and
the driver is for their printers.

Until proper support for all HP printers,
hplip is literally only a lip service. :-(
