Hi all,

Kissfft (http://kissfft.sf.net) ships with a modified BSD license
that says:

Are these modification DFSG compliant? Beside the "All rights
reserved", the third condition looks a bit odd to me, and could
clash with guideline #1: "may not restrict any party from selling
or giving away the software".

thanks, piem
