Huh? Bonjour (or Rendezvous as it used to be called) was BSD licensed,
but it doesn't matter to us as we have our own stack in Avahi.

UPNP is overly complicated for service discovery.

mDNS as a service discovery tool is much better than UPNP, and the tools
are more mature.

applications to use UPNP instead.
