No, the BSD license is not viral at all. The properties you describe are found
in the GPL-family of licenses.

To be clear, derivatives of a 3-clause BSD licensed program can be any license,
or none. You have to keep the copyright notice of the original author though.

I don't think this mailing list is the correct forum since licensing is a topic
independent of Flask.
