How do I choose the appropriate license for my application?
posted 12 years ago
I have written a number of utilities in Java... some of them are only useful to my team at work, while others could be useful to anyone. Each tool uses some open source components (just uses, no modification). Each component might be distributed under a different license (GPL, LGPL, APL, Artistic etc.). What I am trying to understand is if there is any way I can be sure that I finally choose a correct license for my own application - Open Source or Proprietery.
Where can I find some write-up on how to license software that I write?
