Please see

New LLVM Project License Framework

https://llvm.org/ .

And the following pages :


Apache License

Apache Licenses

University of Illinois/NCSA Open Source License

BSD licenses

among others would be useful pages .


I am  NOT a lawyer , therefore my views are NOT legal advice .

With respect to above  license information , you can use LLVM / Clang
freely ( without paying any royalty , etc. ) and without
getting ANY permission .

BUT ...

If you combine differently licensed parts and your own parts ( whether they
have open source licenses or closed source )
there may exist serious legal issues due to these combinations .

Best action for solving such licensing problems , please , find  a ( or
some ) lawyer(s)  specialized on SOFTWARE issues
( this requirement is vitally important ) , and seek their help due to your
commercial requirements .
