    PostgreSQL is released under the BSD licence (the same one used for FreeBSD Unix), which allows for any redistribution of the software.

    In fact the BSD license is much more open than the GPL, which is used for Linux. It allows you to integrate a BSD-licensed product with any other software: proprietary, open, commercial, whatever. The only legal requirement AFAIK is that the original developers be given credit in the release notes.
