React is now licensed under the MIT license so problem solved there!
Scott Domes

react native is unfortunately still not:

lines 14–26 were pointed out to me by legal counsel, and essentially say that should company A make an application that uses react native and Facebook decides to infringe on a patent also granted to company A, company A is prohibited from suing infringing party Facebook, unless they completely stop using react and migrate to a new framework. I.e. Company A loses their license to use React and can be countersued by FB all because they used React and entered a space that Facebook may or may not expand to or buy a startup related to said field and IP.

so for anyone looking to make native clients that access an API or other practical uses, what should we do?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
