[tdf-discuss] LO vs AOO : GPL/LGPL vs ASL licences


Hello all,

In the marketing materials that I am writing covering LO vs AOO, I was
wondering if it would be relevant to go into an explanation about why the
GPL/LGPL licence used by LO was superior to the ASL as a "true open source".

I found this great document that explains the three "most common" licences:
ASL, GPL and LGPL (MPL is not included) (1, 2)

Any thoughts on how relevant it would be to extract some of the information
and apply it on the materials?


Cheers and Happy New Year

Immanuel
