Mozilla License Alpha 2 Draft Released

by Developer.com Staff

The second Alpha draft of the Mozilla Public License is now available for comment.

The Mozilla Public License team released Alpha 2 Draft this week of the next version of the Mozilla license.

"The most significant change in this draft is the patent language. We have made it easier to read but also, we hope, better at protecting communities who choose to use the MPL. It should also have the side effect of making the license Apache-compatible, allowing projects licensed under the next MPL release to include Apache-licensed code in their code bases," Mozilla lawyer Luis Villa said in the news group announcement.

The official Mozilla announcement is available here. The text of the new draft is available here(pdf) and the comment version is here.
