The BSL is a type of license meant to last for a determinate period before becoming completely open source. In general, the purpose is to protect the author’s right to profit from their creations. Uniswap v3’s license was released in 2021 for a period of two years, preventing its code from commercial use. A new license called General Public License applies to the protocol now.

To fork the code, developers will be required an Additional Use Grant, a production exemption meant to accommodate both the needs of open-source and commercial developers.
