Is there a humanitarian use exemption?
Our goal is that disadvantaged communities become enabled to overcome obstacles such as lack of access to intellectual property, lack of access to unpatented knowhow, and lack of access to investment. "Humanitarian" licenses become unavailable as soon as a disadvantaged community begins to climb out of poverty! While licensees may be encouraged to provide products in tiered pricing schemes to overcome financial barriers faced by certain communities, the BiOS license itself is not segmented. This means that the technology is subject to the same license grant provisions for all users, whether or not they choose to use the technology to overcome their disadvantages.
