What is the LICENSE for esp-at

Postby jonathanberi » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:35 pm

https://github.com/espressif/esp32-at/issues/119

Hello,

Looking at the esp-at repository, there isn't a LICENSE file. The esp-idf itself is under Apache 2, while the esp_at.h is under MIT. Does anyone know what the project license actually is and can they help get a license file created+added?

Cheers!

You can easy assume its the same as for esp-idf or check this:
https://github.com/espressif/esp-adf/bl ... e.c#L1-L23
Every file has the same licence included.

Thanks chegewara. Unfortunately, we can't make an assumption about licenses. We want to honor whatever is put forth by Espressif and stay within legal compliance.

Since the AT software is released as a binary, it should still have a license, even if proprietary/closed source. Without it, we don't know how to license the code release, what limitations it puts on distribution, etc.

To be fair, that's only for that C file. We should have an overall project license as well; for example the .a files can't have a header like this. I'll poke the devs, see if we can get this fixed.
