You've only included a copy of the license text, but have not completed the other questions that you're supposed to complete when submitting a license for approval, which can be found here:


Rationale: Clearly state rationale for a new license
Distinguish: Compare to and contrast with the most similar OSI-approved license(s)
Legal review: Describe any legal review the license has been through, and provide results of any legal analysis if available
Proliferation category: Recommend which license proliferation category is appropriate

[FWIW, I think the Legal Review has been done already by the Blue Oak Council, which is composed of 3 lawyers, Kyle Mitchell, Heather Meeker & Luis Villa. Are you submitting on behalf of them?]

I think any review of this license should be suspended at least until those questions are answered.
