License Notes

This license is identical to BSD, with the exception of clause 4. Clause 4 adds an "attribution" requirement, not to be confused with the "advertising" clause found in older BSD license texts. This license was noticed in cyrus-sasl and UpTools. It is Free, but GPL compatibility is unclear at this time.
