With the release of the open source section of the BMC Developer Network, you might have noticed all the projects are provided under a BSD license. Why BSD? BMC is demonstrating our leadership in open source and systems management by being the first company to provide our developers and users with a simple, permissive, licensing policy. We will always use the most permissive license possible when releasing projects to the community. We don’t believe in burdening our projects and consumers with hidden clauses or agendas—if we’re going to open source a project, we’ll open it all the way. A permissive license policy is the foundation to a strong and viable open source systems management eco-system and the key to providing you with the tools you need to unbridle your creativity and architect the future of systems management.
