    Other BSD license and programming language does it matter

    I am looking at the differences between GPL and BSD - does it matter if the program language is GPL if you wanted to release a project as BSD license?

    BSD license and patents

    I was just reading this article about Sun, Apple and Microsoft threatening to sue each other over patents and the thought occurred to me. Can someone take code written by the FreeBSD project and licensed under the BSD license and modify it slightly and patented it? And if so, how does that play...
