First, I am not looking for some laymans interpretation of the license (I can do that myself), but for clarification, best from Qualcomm or any of its representatives, or links to clarifying statements by Qualcomm.
Regarding (iii), I am only allowed to redistribute if I follow the terms. Some shrink-wrap license approval might be sufficient, maybe even passing on the license file, but this needs clarification. If explicit approval by the downloader or end user is required, the linked download from 96boards.org likely violates the license.
(iv) The license only applies to the parts (bootloader) provided by Qualcomm, nothing else. I have to mention which parts are ruled by Qualcomms license and which are governed by other licenses, i.e. I have to “link” software and license. Most other licenses I have seen grant use of names and trademarks for anything but advertising, this license forbids any use.
I don’t want to look for loopholes, I don’t want to go to court to get any clarification. As long as the license remains unclear, I consider the bootloader not redistributable. This is not a real problem for me, I will just use different hardware. Its in the best interest of Qualcomm to get a broad userbase for its product. Other companies provide clear licenses (e.g. TI, ARM, …), even the often blamed chinese chip makers are slowly learning how to do this, why can’t Qualcomm?
