Submission + - Mozilla redrafts open-source licence (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: Mozilla has announced plans to redraft the open-source licence underpinning projects such as Firefox. The Mozilla Public License (MPL) 1.1 has been used to distribute numerous projects including Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenSolaris and Flex for over a decade. In the first phase of this process, Mozilla will release an alpha draft based on feedback already received. This will be followed by "commentary, discussion, and further drafting, followed by beta and release candidate drafts." Mozilla intends to "seriously investigate" whether it can make the MPL compatible with the Apache license, in an effort to "help projects using the MPL become more flexible about using Apache-licensed code."
