[libreplanet-discuss] ReactJS Patent License

I ran into this article today:

Since last year ReactJS has had a restrictive patent license that requires non-compete with Facebook in any use of patents in their product.

This may have been discussed before, but this is a notable and interesting demonstration on why licenses like the BSD license are harmful, since they do not really guarantee software freedom due to the lack of a patent grant.
