+ - What's Next After GPL and Apache?->

snydeq writes "Simon Phipps discusses the likely outcome of a shift in open source license use among community and commercial projects, in light of recent indications of a decline in the use of the GPL in favor of Apache. 'While the newest open source projects such as OpenStack and OpenShift have chosen to use the Apache License, I believe in time we will see the licensing trend for new open source projects targeted at commercial collaboration swing back to the center, away from either the GPL or Apache extremities,' Phipps writes. Enter the Mozilla Foundation's updated MPLv2, which Phipps believes 'occupies a sweet spot: permissive enough for corporations, copyleft enough for communities, and well-written to boot.'"
