[LEGAL-303] ASF, RocksDB, and Facebook's BSD+patent grant licensing
Facebook's licensing includes a "nuclear option" if a user acts in a way interpreted by Facebook as competing with them; the ASF has marked the license as "Category-X", and may not be included in Apache projects as a result. Looks like RocksDB are going to relicense as dual GPLv2/ASL2 to clear this up, but React.js has not shown any plans to do so yet

React’s license: necessary and open?
Luis Villa:

'Is the React license elegant? No. Should you be worried about using it? Probably not. If anything, Facebook’s attempt to give users an explicit patent license should probably be seen as a good faith gesture that builds some confidence in their ecosystem. But yeah, don’t use it if your company intends to invest heavily in React and also sue Facebook over unrelated patents. That… would be dumb. :)'
