I forked a project which is licensed under “BSD-like” license. This goes as the following:
Copyright © 20xx Author CopyRight © 20xx Another author All rights reserved. Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met: * Redistributions of source code must retain the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer. * Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution. This software is provided by the copyright holders "as is" and any express or implied warranties, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are disclaimed. In no event shall the copyright holders be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of this software, even if advised of the possibility of such damage.
Now I want to avoid ambiguous “BSD-like” and state that it's under BSD3 for clarity. As I understand I should just add the following clause:
* Neither the name of the <authors> nor the names of its contributors may be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
Can I add this clause to license of my fork? I'm not a lawyer, but it seems that the “new” license will contain the same info plus one more clause and that should be OK.
