“The Mozilla Public License is one of the most influential
software licenses in recent memory. In many respects, it is the
basis for alot of modern idea about open source, as opposed to just
Free Software and the GPL.
This week, the Mozilla Public License 2.0 was officially
released – and to be honest, I was caught a little off guard. I’ve
known that work was in progress since at least 2008. In 2010,
Mozilla Chief Mitchell Baker let us know that the new MPL 2.0 would
remove references to Netscape in the license.
