An opensource movie organizer

Licensing

Because the project was beginning to look like something real, we looked for a way to protect it.

Open-Source, we said

There are several open-source licenses. And choosing is not so easy.  MIT? GNU GPL? BSD?

After reading some guides, and advice on the net, it seemed that GNU GPL was hugely used. It may be a reason for it. And in the same time, the text seems relevant.

Deal. Let’s take the newest version.

GPL V3, how it works?

It’s one of the thing that is so easy, that it’s hard to believe it works.

  1. You take the license and put it in a file COPYING at the project’s root.
  2. You begin all file by an abstract of the license (also given on the GNU GPL website)
  3. No ! There is no 3rd point! It’s already done.

So our project is under GNU GPLv3 License…
