I’m reviewing some jQuery plugins for distribution with closed source (on the server, anyhow) commercial applications. One thing I’m noticing is that there isn’t any standard license that covers all plugins.
After reading through the legal BS of a couple licenses, I’m feeling very glad I didn’t go through with getting a law degree.
I’m interested in a concise list of all common software licenses and what requirements they place on code’s use in a software project.
By “software licenses” I mean licenses applied to code that is released to the public domain.
Imagine a comparison grid of licenses (MS-PL, GNU 3.0, etc) and restrictions (Include disclaimer, modify source, not for profit, etc), where you can get an idea of what the license says before slogging through the legalese.
