|Open source license||computing dictionary|
<legal> Any document that attempts to specify open source usage and distribution of software. These licenses are usually drafted by experts and are likely to be more legally sound than one a programmer could write. However, loopholes do exist.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of open source licenses:
1. Public Domain - No license.
2. BSD License - An early open source license
5. Mozilla Public Licenses. (MPL, MozPL) and Netscape Public License (NPL).
