ADI BSD License
the home page contains these comments This is a slightly modified version
of the three clause BSD license. It adds a clause to explicitly state the
patent protection that this license provides (which is none). The ADI BSD
License is similar to the Clear BSD License, which the Free Software
Foundation indicates is compatible with both GPLv2 and GPLv3. If you have
any questions about license compatibility - consult your nearest lawyer.
Before incorporating code licensed under the ADI BSD license into projects
which you are going to ship in a end product, you must ensure that you have
the patent rights to do.
