NetBSD Moves To a 2-Clause BSD License 67

jschauma writes "Alistair Crooks, president of the NetBSD Foundation, announced recently that it 'has changed its recommended license to be a 2-clause BSD license.' This makes NetBSD even more easily available to a number of organizations and individuals who may have been put off by the advertising or endorsement clauses. See Alistair's email and NetBSD's licensing information for more details."

    + we have seen some instances where clause 3 was ignored by groups and organisations
    Interesting take on it. Would that more folks saw common ground above license lawyering.
    • Now if this were GPL software, lawsuits would be flying already! Obviously NetBSD has a rather radical definition of freedom, one that has not been approved by our moral arbiters at GNU.

  • I thought they did that a day or two ago. I smell dupe!

    I could have sworn it said "Aleister Crowley."

All Finagle Laws may be bypassed by learning the simple art of doing without thinking.
