Remove the advertising clause from the slirp license
According to the FSF, the 4-clause BSD license, which slirp is covered under, is not compatible with the GPL or LGPL[1]. [1] http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/index_html#GPLIncompatibleLicenses There are three declared copyright holders in slirp that use the 4-clause BSD license, the Regents of UC Berkley, Danny Gasparovski, and Kelly Price. Below are the appropriate permissions to remove the advertise clause from slirp from each party. Special thanks go to Richard Fontana from Red Hat for contacting all of the necessary authors to resolve this issue! Regents of UC Berkley: From ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change July 22, 1999 To All Licensees, Distributors of Any Version of BSD: As you know, certain of the Berkeley Software Distribution ("BSD") source code files require that further distributions of products containing all or portions of the software, acknowledge within their advertising materials that such products contain software developed by UC Berkeley and its contributors. Specifically, the provision reads: " * 3. All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software * must display the following acknowledgement: * This product includes software developed by the University of * California, Berkeley and its contributors." Effective immediately, licensees and distributors are no longer required to include the acknowledgement within advertising materials. Accordingly, the foregoing paragraph of those BSD Unix files containing it is hereby deleted in its entirety. William Hoskins Director, Office of Technology Licensing University of California, Berkeley Danny Gasparovski: Subject: RE: Slirp license Date: Thu, 8 Jan 2009 10:51:00 +1100 From: "Gasparovski, Daniel" <Daniel.Gasparovski@ato.gov.au> To: "Richard Fontana" <rfontana@redhat.com> Hi Richard, I have no objection to having Slirp code in QEMU be licensed under the 3-clause BSD license. Thanks for taking the effort to consult me about this. Dan ... Kelly Price: Date: Thu, 8 Jan 2009 19:38:56 -0500 From: "Kelly Price" <strredwolf@gmail.com> To: "Richard Fontana" <rfontana@redhat.com> Subject: Re: Slirp license Thanks for contacting me, Richard. I'm glad you were able to find Dan, as I've been "keeping the light on" for Slirp. I have no use for it now, and I have little time for it (now holding onto Keenspot's Comic Genesis and having a regular US state government position). If Dan would like to return to the project, I'd love to give it back to him. As for copyright, I don't own all of it. Dan does, so I will defer to him. Any of my patches I will gladly license to the 3-part BSD license. My interest in re-licensing was because we didn't have ready info to contact Dan. If Dan would like to port Slirp back out of QEMU, a lot of us 64-bit users would be grateful. Feel free to share this email address with Dan. I will be glad to effect a transfer of the project to him and Mr. Bellard of the QEMU project.
