Customer Review

on 9 August 2005
This book is essential for anyone with an interest in open-source licensing. The book explains the most important open source software license such as the GPL, LGPL, MIT, Artistic, Mozilla, Qt, ...
The software licenses are described in depth, literally dissecting them paragraph by paragraph. The language is accurate, clear and legalistic - the author is a lawyer and does a rigorous examination of the matters at stake.
You will get an excellent reference for what software licenses are and what is their use, plus for the twists, strengthes and weaknesses of each particular license and how each may adapt to a software projects's objectives (from various development perspectives, commercial, non-commercial or mixed-bag).
The book can be downloaded for free since it's distributed through a Creative Commons license. Still it is well worth the small amount of money you might pay for a printed edition.
