I have hardly if ever found any fb2k-component with a license. Are there e.g. any licensing clauses for the SDK that restrict the developers on this matter?

(BTW ... is it paranoid to suggest that foobar2000.org should maybe carry a general 'no warranty!' disclaimer for anything hosted, not only the fb2k license itself?)

Valid subject; I was actually planning to add a license display to the component installer system already.

There are no significant restrictions imposed by the SDK on this; there has been no mechanism to show a license on first run of a component before (especially not when all component installation was manual!)

BTW components are normally expected to show licenses in their about boxes.

This job would be great if it wasn't for the users.
