The updated licence isn’t without controversy:

That said, I think the issue is that Facebook could revoke your licence to use 
React if you take legal action against Facebook. I don’t imagine the Koha 
community is going to do that, so it’s probably not a blocker.

I did much research on that particular issue and it was put to rest when 
Facebook updated it's license for React. It looks like the Wikipedia page only 
has the vaguest reference to that ; )

 

Regarding licensing:
