Clarification about the project license

The ODF Add-in for Word 2007 is an Open Source project maintained by Clever Age, an independent IT services company, with the help of Aztecsoft, Dialogika and the community. It may make use of other Open Source resources, as long as those are compatible with the BSD license used in the project. A very small piece of code (around 30 lines) was taken from J. David Eisenberg's excellent book OASIS OpenDocument Essentials with the author's permission. We guarantee that there is no licensing conflict for any of the code being used in this project.
