This is plainly Open Source and is basically a 3-clause BSD except for
the indemnity clause.

I personally wouldn't accept such an indemnity, but I don't think it's an
OSI issue, particularly since this is a legacy license.
I am expressing my opinion. When my John Cowan
honorable and gallant friend is called, cowan at ccil.org
he will express his opinion. This is http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
the process which we call Debate. --Winston Churchill
