I'm torn. I think Facebook's kinda evil, but then I also thing software patents are a load of crud. So I actually think if Facebook took this one step further and made it "you can't sue anyone for patent infringement", it'd be alright.

Maybe a variant would work if a lot of open source projects adopted it, whereby if you use any software under the license, you had to swear off software patent lawsuits.

The problem I see here is that FB is protecting itself just beause you used React. Considering vue and angular exist ... React isn't all that unique. And FB agreed bot to sue anybody in it's React ecosystem then yeah I'd be game.

FB using the BSD this way is being a Dick ...

I do like your idea of having a no sue license. It reminds me of the don't be a donkey Dick one.
