What problem with the license do you mean?

Apache v2 is one of the most permissive and clear open-source
licenses. The only part of Piqi source distribution that links with
Erlang programs is Piqi runtime support library, which is literally a
single Erlang module:
http://github.com/alavrik/piqi/blob/master/piqirun-erlang/src/piqirun.erl

In addition to Apache v2 license header it also contain a copyright
notice and a copy of MIT license from protobuffs library
(http://github.com/ngerakines/erlang_protobuffs), since I reused some
code from it. MIT license is as permissive as Apache v2.
