Sample text

Indeed, it might be that open source is radical. And those who would rather make a grand marketing blitz each year announcing that the cathedral is about to offer the masses a new version of This95 or a new version of That2000, rather than produce superior products that are supported and wanted by computer users, may be justified in their assertions that open source is a threat to their business. Open source, of course, is not just about technology; it is about free books, free art, and free information (as we are often told, free, as in freedom).

More importantly, article 7 should be read to emphasize that open source licenses will be enforceable if they provide adequate notice to open source participants of their terms and give those participants a reasonable opportunity to review the terms and the right to reject them. Articles 8 and 9, “License Must Not Be Specific to a Product” and “The License Must Not Restrict Other Software,” respectively, are aimed at foreclosing license traps for end-users. The open source license cannot contain a provision wherein the rights attached to the program depend upon the program’s inclusion in a particular software distribution bundle, nor may an open source license place restrictions on other software that is distributed along with the licensed software.

Moreover, lawyers must consider the individual needs of a given client and draft accordingly. Notably, rather unlike the software licenses written by lawyers who work for most proprietary software developers, open source licenses are primarily targeted toward individual end-users and small developers or programmers. A good license uses clear, straightforward language that is readable by the target audience. Developers who roll their own license must carefully consider their own objectives and draft accordingly.
