A word from the author on licensing
I am a developer, not a lawyer. My goal is to deliver working solutions and not to cause legal troubles to anyone. If for some reason your legal department is not allright with Jsonix license and it prohibits you to use Jsonix, contact me, we'll find a solution.
Jsonix license is the 3-clause BSD license which is compatible with GPL.
Jsonix license does not require you to include any acknowledgments for Jsonix in advertising materials for your software.
Nevertheless I would be grateful (and I thinks it's fair after all) if you include the following mentioning as a token of gratitude:
This product was built using Jsonix software developed by Aleksei Valikov, Highsource.
