Re: Questions about libntru license/ntru patent status



25.02.2016, 06:31, "Walter Landry" <wlandry@caltech.edu>:

  Tor itself would not have to switch. Distributors would have to be careful when distributing binaries, which is something that Tor may or may not care about.


Tor wouldn't have to switch even though they provide binaries at torproject.org?

  If that is a problem, it might be a better idea to use the
  BSD-licensed implementation of NTRU [2] instead. It has the added
  benefit of being more efficient.
 If it is faster, you could fold it into the official GPL-licensed version and enjoy performance and patent protection.
 
Are you saying other implementations than the official one are not patent protected, or is it non-GPL'd implementations?
 
Thanks,
