Help us pick a project license!
Affero General Public License (AGPL)
Pro: Popular licenses are easier to defend because they have legal precedent and everyone has invested interest in bad precedents not being set.
The Reciprocal Public License (RPL)
Pro: Removes the GPL’s “privacy loophole” enabling the hiding of improvements.
Some flavor of GPL or anything copyleft:
Preventing proprietary code leaking into the project?
What’s best practice for insuring proprietary code doesn’t end up in the project?
Example #1: Someone copies in their own code which they’ve licensed as All Rights Reserved on a different platform.
Example #2: Someone submits unlicensed code they’ve written which may technically be considered intellectual property till they’ve open source it even though they’re submitting it to an open source project.
