The license in each file is the one that is authoritative. The file you are refering to has original 'The Regents of the University of California' copyright, so the "advertising clause" is revoked as per ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change . Hope this helps. Disclaimer: This is my own view of the issue, and I don't speak "officially" for the FreeBSD project. I'm sure somebody will correct me if I'm wrong :-). -- Simon L.
