Open Source Licensing for .Net Portal Frameworks
I am currently casting about for at open source web portal frameworks written in .Net. I would like my first concern to be the architecture of the UI plug-in modules, security providers, and data models. Unfortunately, it looks like my first concern must first be the license model of the software. To be fair, I am looking to embed this software in a for-profit, redistributable, and re-branded application.
There is actually very little to complain about with free software even if it is free like a puppy.
So, what license is the most conducive to an embedding scenario? I don’t know. I will have to get someone in legal to start to plow through these things, I think. Any feedback on your experiences would be most appreciated.
|GNU General Public License (GPL)
|Common Public License (CPL)
Any other frameworks you suggest, by the way?
