  Mozilla Public License - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The MPL is characterized as a hybridization of the modified BSD license and GNU General Public License.
The MPL has been adapted by others as a license for their software, most notably Sun Microsystems, as the Common Development and Distribution License for OpenSolaris, the open source version of the Solaris 10 operating system.
The license is regarded as a weak copyleft.

 CDDL Description and High-Level Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: )
We have carefully reviewed the existing OSI approved licenses and found none of them to meet our needs, and thus have reluctantly drafted a new open source license based on the Mozilla Public License, version 1.1 (“MPL”).
We wished to create a license that was simpler, less burdensome for contributors, clear and consistent in the use of terms and language, and that was as reusable and general as possible.
This change was made to make the license more reusable by others: it addresses the concern that the license steward could change the terms of the license in ways that are not compatible with a community's (and the Initial Developer's) values and objectives.
