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.

/wallpapers/Angelus* Apparently released under CC-BY-NC preventing commercial usage (needs verification)

Under Windows NT4 DDK sample code license Some can be replaced by similar code under Ms-PL Open-Source license from https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-driver-samples/tree/master/storage/class
