Nope. 4-BSDL is free because was always free (= it granted all
essential freedoms). By dropping advertising clause Regents of UC
changed the licence of software that was *exclusively owned* by UC, but
they had no power to re-licence any other work that was covered by
4-clause (or any other variant of) BSDL.
