The kallasoft SmugMug Java API is licensed under the Apache License v2.0. A copy of the license is available inside the Complete download in the /docs subdirectory or you can download a copy of it here.

The long and short of the API being under the Apache License v2.0 is that you are free to use the API in an open source or commercial product, but you need to provide full credits to the kallasoft SmugMug Java API in the documentation of your product somewhere.
