This page shall be used to track problematic licenses in the ReactOS source code tree. It was created after a presentation about Licensing Best Practices held by Colin Finck at ReactOS Hackfest 2017.

To put it in a nutshell: Problematic licenses include any form of non-Open-Source licenses or licenses prohibiting commercial usage.
