with uasm the problem is much more big.
if i'm not mistaken you can use it at all except  for personal use (becuase its jwasm based)

Nonsense. UAsm is a tool, whatever you build using this tool is your own property, fullstop.

UASM's source code is released under the Sybase Open Watcom Public License, which allows free commercial and non-commercial use

Note this is about the UAsm source, not the binary.

from wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sybase_Open_Watcom_Public_License)

Quote
The license has not been accepted as "free" under the Debian Free Software Guidelines, due to the license's termination clauses.

This makes the Watcom license also GPL incompatible and a stronger copyleft license than the GPL and even the AGPL

Hi whatsup,

You told that you don't have any project so why do you criticise those licencing schemes?

Well, clothes are basically required to protect your body and this has nothing to do with programming. The purpose of my question :

Explain why the license of the UAsm source is important for you. Do you want to write your "own" assembler based on the Watcom sources?
