Facebook’s BSD+Patents License and how it affects your company or side-project

Not all software that includes react is SaaS… like WordPress, my software would have included react-based Ui components in a future version. It’s “shipped” software that someone downloads and installs. I am concerned that I’m limiting my audience by bundling with this kind of licensing – even if *I* don’t have patents and worries about protecting them, some of my users are at large corporations who definitely would!

And the current scope of facebook’s activities isn’t a good indication of where there might be patent conflict, either. They are working in the self-driving car space, amongst others, for example. 15 years ago, no-one would have expected that search engine company to be one of the top mobile phone OS makers, or an online bookstore to be defining new models of computer consumption.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
