This is perhaps the one segment that makes it not OSD-compliant,
violating OSD #9, but I'm not sure:
[You agree] [t]hat you are not allowed to combine or distribute the
Software with other software that is licensed under terms that seek to
require that the Software (or any intellectual property in it) be
provided in source code form, licensed to others to allow the creation
or distribution of derivative works, or distributed without charge.
It even includes a patent poison pill!
