Understand the advantages of using a BSD license


Recognize the 2-clause BSD license and how the license does not place restrictions on whether BSD licensed code remains Open Source or becomes integrated into a commercial product.

TODO: might as well cover 3- and 4-clause licenses too since a lot still uses that and also mention the UC removal of advertising clause -- note this is important as that only applies to UCB's code and not to third-party code included with BSDs that may have used advertising clause. NetBSD for example continues to use full old style license.
