Free to use

This page should help on classifying Nomos signatures reported by FOSSology as "BSD-lite" in order to enable the implementation of enhancement #7233.

This is a proposed classification of all signatures found with the name _LT_FREE_x in STRINGS.in:

Right to create derivative works

This section should contain signatures with text granting the right to create derivative works. This implies will only match licenses allowing the creation of derivative works that might be reported as "BSD-lite" as it used to be in the past.

Unclear if derivative works permited

This section should contain signatures where the grant of the right to create derivative works isn't clear. This implies that they might match licenses not granting that right and therefore shouldn't be reported as "BSD-lite". Reporting them as "Freeware" would be a possibility.

Pending classification

This section should contain signatures where is unclear if the right to create derivative works is granted or not and therefore haven't been classified yet.

In order to classify them it would be very helpfull clarifying if following phrases are granting this right or not:
  • "in whole or in part to use"
  • "to use for any purpose"
  • "otherwise use"
  • "use if free"
  • "use and distribution without restriction"
  • "is free software"
