We want to provide an update on the license for SBL.
Slim Bootloader leverages some libraries from EDKII and also uses the EDKII build
infrastructure. Recently the EDKII community decided to relicense the EDKII code under
BSD-2-Clause-Patent license is designed to provide a simple permissive license and also
has an express patent grant included. https://spdx.org/licenses/BSD-2-Clause-Patent.html
After careful consideration, we believe BSD-2-Clause-Patent license will benefit SBL
customers as well as this license is as permissive as BSD 2 clause and also includes an
express patent grant included. Based on this we have updated the Slim Bootloader license
to BSD-2-Clause-Patent to better align with EDKII.
