You should not be worried about the license. Just follow it.
The license grants you several rights, and as long as you
comply with the license, there is no problem deriving a new
OS from FreeBSD. Just make sure you don't violate any

Note that I am not a lawyer, and this is no official response
from a FreeBSD body. Depending on your local legislation, I
suggest you discuss the topic with a lawyer you trust to give
you further advice.

Also read the legal documents provided by FreeBSD itself and
other sources. Read and understand (!) the license itself.




You may find more specific answers by directing your questions
to a legal representative of the FreeBSD foundation or a more
appropriate mailing list (-questions@ is for general questions,
usually answered by FreeBSD users and contributors).
