source of the Apache Software Foundation, featuring 15 intense
training classes over two days followed by three days of more
than 50 sessions by the creators of open source software such
as the Apache webserver, Tomcat, Lucene, Wicket and more.

Making Sense of Open Source Licenses
Are all open source licenses equal? Why are there so many? How are they different? Which should I choose? If you've ever asked these questions, don't worry. You're in good company. "License proliferation," or the increasing number of free and open source licenses in use, has many managers and developers alike confused. In this session, we'll review the most common open source licenses in a simple way that will help you make sense of them. So the next time someone asks you about the difference between the GPL, LGPL, and MPL, you'll know just what to say.
