I have very pressing concern in regard to using open source software in my product.

I am developing a telecom product, that will go in to service providers tier-1 network. I have this dilemma, whether to integrate open source software licensed under Apache or Eclipse in to my product. I know if software is licensed under BSD or MIT they are free to use. How about Apache and Eclipse. Does anyone integrate open source software in to their products.

Products that are sold are different from providing services. In service oriented product development, we can use any open source software under any license as long as we are not distributing it as object or selling in product form.

Anyone has deeper knowledge of concerns or issues to be wary of?
