This is the BSDA Study Guide Book written via a wiki collaboration. This is a work in progress. You may contribute to or discuss this specific page at http://bsdwiki.reedmedia.net/wiki/Understand_the_advantages_of_using_a_BSD_license.html.
Understand the advantages of using a BSD license
Recognize the 2-clause BSD license and how the license does not place restrictions on whether BSD licensed code remains Open Source or becomes integrated into a commercial product.
TODO: might as well cover 3- and 4-clause licenses too since a lot still uses that and also mention the UC removal of advertising clause -- note this is important as that only applies to UCB's code and not to third-party code included with BSDs that may have used advertising clause. NetBSD for example continues to use full old style license.
