Blessing and beer software licences

Blessing and beer software licences

I have done some manual static analysis and even read the licenses.


SQLite is a C-language library that implements a small, fast, self-contained, high-reliability, full-featured, SQL database engine. SQLite is the most used database engine in the world.

The source code files for other SQL database engines typically begin with a comment describing your legal rights to view and copy that file. The SQLite source code contains no license since it is not governed by copyright. Instead of a license, the SQLite source code offers a blessing:

 May you do good and not evil
 May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
 May you share freely, never taking more than you give.

 * "THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):
 * <phk@FreeBSD.ORG> wrote this file.  As long as you retain this notice you
 * can do whatever you want with this stuff. If we meet some day, and you think
 * this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a beer in return.   Poul-Henning Kamp
