21 Several files in Glouton are derived more-or-less mechanically from
22 files in X11 and the Mesa OpenGL implementation. For the most part
23 these are also released under the X11 license. gl.lisp, glx.lisp and
24 glu.lisp are also covered by the SGI Free Software License B, Version
25 1.1. The Free Software Foundation has this to say about that license:
26
27 The "SGI Free Software License B", although its name says "free",
28 is not a Free Software License. It has three major problems. 1. It
29 restricts its patent license to unmodified versions of the
30 software. 2. It terminates if your use of the software infringes
31 copyrights or patents which are not SGI's. This is problematic
32 because it gives SGI grounds to sue you even when you have done
33 nothing to them. 3. The license requires you to inform SGI of
34 legal problems with the software. This violates your privacy
35 rights, and can conflict with professional confidentiality
36 requirements, such as attorney-client privilege.
37
38 These header files are also distributed with X and Mesa. You are
39 unlikely to encounter patent issues in the OpenGL and GLX header
40 files.
