    no thatís just a Lie and FUD! if a Iranian can not use the OpenSource/FreeSoftware without violate AMD's copyright then its just not Free-Software/Opensource software.

    the export is not releasing a source-code in a BSD licence you can do it its not against the "Law"

    the one who do download/upload it to iran does the crime not "AMD"

    this means: the anti Iranian BSD licence is not an open-source licence.

    because its only a opensource-lizence if the people can do a "crime" with the source code without violating "AMDs" copyright.

    its more than Ironic you do violate AMD's copyright law if you do a crime LOL only complete stupid people think in this way!

    if you kill a human(crime) you just give a SHIT about AMDs copyright!

    Q, have you actually read the US export control laws (the BIS regs) or are you just saying "what would be nice if it were true" ?

    Export control laws are probably the most complex and contradictary legislation around, and right now they appear to be getting worse. They are inconsistent and incompatible between countries, but that doesn't make them any less "the law", and acknowledging them in a license agreement doesn't make them any more restrictive.

    Anyways, now that we know which project the code should end up in it may make sense to change the license. I've already said a few times that we went with the standard license to get the code out in public more quickly, but it doesn't seem to be registering so I'll say it one more time.

    It's only licensed for use in Mesa. Outside of that, it has an obnoxious advertising clause that has to be used there.

    i say this because I know your "version" is Illegitimate.

    AMD can """"not"""" be sentenced as guilty for another Mann's crime.

    because of this its complete idiotic!

    just tell me: why should I read Illegitimate NAZI-666-America-666-NAZI LAWs?

    its like Adolf Hitler Enabling Act of 1933 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enabling_Act_of_1933



    anyway the USA do have such a law its called: "Catastrophic Emergency" right of disposal ""all federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations""

    "Logic" is still valid and it doesnít matter whatever the crazy US freaks write in a book Logic is still valid.

    AMD is innocent for another Mannís crime.

    if amd release this as pure BSD licence and another MANN send this to iran then the other man is guilty and not amd.

    sure you can always chance the license but your chose of license show the "inner" mind

    your inner mind: "Its open-source but not for Iranian people" this is just Racism

    and Racism is never legitimate!

    My understanding of english language is obviously worse than that of a native speaker, but it doesn't look like that it isn't free software IMHO:

    So, if you are using that code outside of Mesa, you only need to attribute the rights with a single sentence. BSD, MIT and CC-BY licenses require the same thing: attribution. For Mesa there is an exception, but it's not the rule. You can do what you want with that code, if you respect that clause and write that sentence in the binary, so your freedom is safe.

    The FSF does argue strongly against them in the "free sw" introduction, but GPLv2 and others do include some explicit support for them.

    I don't know the correct answer, just that if you ask three people you're definitely getting more than one answer (and there are only two possible ).

    If you're asking why the initial release of code had this license, it's just because we could release a lot earlier with this license than with something else. Getting agreement that something less is safe and applicable takes longer, and we wanted the code out in public repos so other developers could work with it.

    If you're asking "why does AMD have to follow US law" it's that "being headquartered in the US" thing AFAIK.
    Thank you for all your efforts, the zealots will just have to get over the license problems. Your hands are tied as a legal entity operating in the United States.

    Just shut the fuck up already. they are bound by laws governing corporations and are required to take a great many legal steps becuase of that. due diligence and negligence come to mind.

    so deal with it and move on with your life. Its no racism. Your just stupid.

    Great this is how AMERICA fix problems just kill the people with another "Opinion" via """CIA""" murderer organisation.
