-test+====== ADI BSD License ====== 
 + 
 +This is a slightly modified version of the [[http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php|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 //[[http://labs.metacarta.com/license-explanation.html|Clear BSD License]]//, which the Free Software Foundation [[http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html|indicates]] is compatible with both GPLv2 and GPLv3. If you have any questions about license compatibility - consult your nearest lawyer. 
 + 
 +<note tip>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.</note>
