in thread Production Environments and "Foreign" Code

I'd say that licenses like BSD and Artistic are less encouraging to contribute back than say GPL but it is more a problem for module authors then for their end users and your example shows it. In the context of this thread it is definetely is not a problem.

As for corporate legal may find that verifying this is harder than they want: well, in this case you should not use Perl in first place as Perl itself and all core modules are dual licensed under GPL/Artistic.
