Re: Squiz.net Open Source License - is it free?

Totally non-free.  The notice requirement is enough.

There are other requirements which are dangerously insane too, such as the 
requirement to assign copyright and patent rights in derivative works to 
them.  (!)  In the US, this means that it requires you to mail a paper 
document to them, which I'm pretty sure qualifies as a fee.

It also bans you from suing them for *anything*, including totally unrelated 
topics (say, they killed your cat), which is obviously non-free, and is even 
worse than I've ever seen in a proprietary EULA.

Don't touch this monstrosity.
