UTF-8 CuteNews is based on CuteNews 1.4.6 from CutePHP.com. The original CuteNews license (enclosed in the zip file) also applies to UTF-8 CuteNews. I merely claim some of the changes done based on CuteNews as my own work, while other code changes were provided by users from the CutePHP community.
UTF-8 CuteNews uses a modified version of GreyWyvern.Com's UTF-8 converter to process foreign characters and is licensed under the BSD license.
