      Description

      LGPL vs BSD

      /modules/dxp/apps/commerce/commerce-dashboard-web/src/main/resources/META-INF/resources/js/utils/test/loadData.js includes two licenses at the same time - BSD-3-Clause, which it was initially released under, and on top of it our standard LGPL-2.1-or-later boilerplate text

      /**

      If that file includes only code that Liferay holds copyright in - which I assume is the case -, we can decide which license to publish it under. Remove either the LGPL (or LicenseRef-LES, see next item) or the BSD comment. For now, I think it would be most consistent, if remove the comment block with BSD and replace both with our proprietary header. (For the future, I have plans how to have headers that we can write once and never need to change even when they get copied between repositories and editions.)
