OMAP-L137: SYS/BIOS and BSP code licensing

Part Number: OMAP-L137
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TMS320C6747,

Hi Team,

Good day.

We need your confirmation regarding SYS/BIOS and BSP code licensing. 

Our customer is producing a program using SYS/BIOS and BSP code. They understand that SYS/BIOS and BSP are BSD licenses. Therefore, it is free to modify and redistribute, and there is no need to disclose the source code. Is it correct?

They are using:
Code Composer studio version 9.3.0.00012
OMAP-L137, TMS320C6747
SYS/BIOS vesion 6.76.4.02
Platform support product (PSP) 02.020 package for the OMAP-L137 Evaluation module
Chip Support Register configuration macros

Thanks in advance.
