But how is this different from the BSD clause:
* Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright
notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the
documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution.
That was the substance of my question. Is this not a similar limitation
on distribution imposed by the license? Why is this GPL-compatible, when
the advertising clause is not?
