Talk 1

Open source licensing: What licenses are out there and what has been successful - 30 min.

I will summarize popular OSS licenses like the Apache, BSD, GPL, MPL, and so on, explaining terms like copyleft and open core along the way. The aim is to give you a better idea of what licenses are out there when you choose a license for your project. I will end by noting the success of open core models and suggest how you might use such an approach with these licenses.

About Speaker: Ajay K is a software engineer in Chennai.
