Please address any questions related to FreeBSD copyright / licensing or
use of FreeBSD trademarked items to info at

In general, using code from FreeBSD does not need any special permission
and you can freely distribute derived works so long as you maintain the
original copyright notices on any code you use.  Some parts of the
FreeBSD codebase are supplied under alternative licenses such as GPLv2
or CDDL, which have different terms, but allow similar levels of freedom.
