[ Please discuss this license. -russ ]
I'd like to submit the OpenMap Software License for approval by OSI. This is a
license that we've used for the past few years to cover the use of our software
as produced by our company, BBN Technologies in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This license may be posted to the license-discuss mailing list under my name.
The OpenMap Software License is most similar to the OSI-approved Artistic
license, and has been modified slightly to conform to business requirements of
our Contracts and legal departments, mainly to protect our intellectual property
and ensure that software submitted to us for inclusion is indeed the property of
the submitter. We believe that the license interacts with other licenses like
the Artistic license.
Thank you very much for your consideration of our license. We believe in
participating in the open source process, and would appreciate the opportunity
to be OSI-certified. If there are any questions, please feel free to let me know.
