Interview with Wietse Venema about his tcp_wrappers license

Author: JT Smith

BSD Today interviews Unix programmer and author Wietse Venema, creator of, among other software, tcp_wrappers (a.k.a. TCPD): "Recently, there's been a lot of discussion and news about Darren Reed's IP Filter licensing. The IP Filter code
license has the exact same "Redistribution and use in source and binary forms are permitted" statement as
Venema's tcp_wrappers code. Regular BSD-type licenses say the same thing, but they also include: "with or
without modification.""
