Boost licensing policy aside for a moment, the CPL is your friend.


 - derivative works subject to CPL;

 - grant of patent license;

 - redistribution of binaries under a different license,
   even a commercial license, is permitted (but the CPL'd
   source code must still be made available under the CPL);

 - CPL'd code may be combined with other licensed code
   without affecting the other code's license.
