Open source licences

Posted on:September 07 2006

Sometimes reading open source licences can be fun. I just came across the licence of DUMB, it's a BSD or zlib style licence with some modifications. An extract:

If you are using the Program in someone else's bedroom on any Monday at
3:05 pm, you are not allowed to modify the Program for ten minutes. [This
clause provided by Inphernic; every licence should contain at least one
clause, the reasoning behind which is far from obvious.]
Another one:

No clause in this licence shall prevent this software from being depended
upon by a product licensed under the GNU General Public Licence. If such a
clause is deemed to exist, Debian, then it shall be respected in spirit as
far as possible and all other clauses shall continue to apply in full
force.

Maybe I should add one or two of these here too. :)
