The FreeRTOS+CLI license terms are different to the FreeRTOS license terms.
FreeRTOS+CLI uses a dual license model that allows the software to be used under
a standard GPL open source license, or a commercial license. The standard GPL
license (unlike the modified GPL license under which FreeRTOS itself is
distributed) requires that all software statically linked with FreeRTOS+CLI is
also distributed under the same GPL V2 license terms. Details of both license

following URL: http://www.FreeRTOS.org/gpl-2.0.txt.

Businesses and individuals that for commercial or other reasons cannot comply
