The FreeBASIC compiler (fbc) is released under the GPL license.

With the exception of LibFFI (which is used for Threadcall), the runtime library (libfb) is released under the LGPL license, for both the single-threaded and multi-threaded versions, with this extension to allow linking to it statically:

"As a special exception, the copyright holders of this library give you permission to link this library with independent modules to produce an executable, regardless of the license terms of these independent modules, and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under terms of your choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked independent module, the terms and conditions of the license of that module. An independent module is a module which is not derived from or based on this library. If you modify this library, you may extend this exception to your version
