YASM licensing overview and summary
Note: This document does not provide legal advice nor is it the actual license
of any part of YASM. See the individual licenses for complete details.
Consult a laywer for legal advice.
The primary license of YASM is the 2-clause BSD license. Please use this
license if you plan on submitting code to the project.
Libyasm is 2-clause or 3-clause BSD licensed, with the exception of bitvect,
which is triple-licensed under the Artistic license, GPL, and LGPL. Libyasm
is thus GPL and LGPL compatible. In addition, this also means that libyasm
is free for binary-only distribution as long as the terms of the 3-clause BSD
license and Artistic license (as it applies to bitvect) are fulfilled.
Most of the modules are 2-clause BSD licensed, with the exception of:
preprocs/nasm - LGPL licensed
The frontends are 2-clause BSD licensed.
