On Bittorrent's web page, they say their license is a variation of
They also claim it complies with the OSD.
Guess wikipedia is wrong.

I read the following in Wikipedia:
The original BitTorrent application was written in Python
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Python_programming_language> and its
code has been released under the BitTorrent Open Source
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source> License (a modified version
the Jabber <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabber> Open Source License),
of version 4.0.
I wasn't aware of a version 4.0 of the Jabber Open Source License; the
Jabber license posted at OSI's website is version 1.0. Nor is a
Open Source License posted on the OSI website.
I found this article through a link on the FSF website, at which they
to BitTorrent as a "free format" that they use to post their conferences
the web. [See http://gplv3.fsf.org/av.]
