If you get paid to do your research in any way(as an employee of a
university, non-profit, govt agency, big oil, small bio-tech, graduate
student or post-doc receiving a stipend), you must pay Intel for a
license. Degree-granting academic institutions get a discount.

If you are programming for a personal project on your own accord and
aren't being compensated in any way for it, it's free.
