 The FSF says that they might agree with the extra patent restrictions in
 principle, but that the license still isn't GPL compatible.  Can you
 figure out from the license description what the legalese means?  At a
 first glance, it seems like you are allowed to combine the code with a
 patented product, but that, the moment you sue them for some reason, you
 lose those rights?  That's one reason I really like the BSD license --
 it's sane and simple to understand

 Either way, this license is, in some way, more restrictive than the GPL
 and therefore quite possibly not BSD compatible.
