Trusted Computing Group License

Notes

This license is loosely based on BSD, but contains a lot of legal boilerplate. It also has two cases:

  1. Software (referred to as "Source Code", this case is Free and GPL compatible)
  2. Specification documentation (this case is non-free, because of an explicit lack of permission to modify)

This means that the Trusted Computing Group License is only permitted in Fedora when used with software. Documents under the TCGL must not be included in Fedora.

A copy of the license text was taken from https://github.com/01org/TPM2.0-TSS/blob/master/LICENSE on November 1, 2016.
