-<p>The SGI Free Software License B, although its name says
-&ldquo;free&rdquo;, is not a free software License.  It has three
-major problems.  1.&nbsp;It restricts its patent license to unmodified
-versions of the software.  2.&nbsp;It terminates if your use of the
-software infringes copyrights or patents which are not SGI's.  This is
-problematic because it gives SGI grounds to sue you even when you have
-done nothing to them.  3.&nbsp;The license requires you to inform SGI
-of legal problems with the software.  This violates your privacy
-rights, and can conflict with professional confidentiality
-requirements, such as attorney-client privilege.</p></dd>
