Rappture is a freely available, open source package. You can do virtually anything you like with it, such as modifying it, redistributing it, and selling it either in whole or in part. But you can't prevent anyone else from doing the same, and you must keep all copyright notices intact, so the ownership and authorship is clear.
The license terms for this package are described in the file license.terms included in the source distribution. See the current source distribution for the latest copy of the license terms.
