CC0: This license allows users to share and adapt the material and operates under the following terms:
Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions:
The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
The GNU General Public License, is an open source license meant for software. If your software is licensed under the terms of the GPL, it is free. However, “free” here does not essentially mean freeware—it can also be a paid software. Instead, “free” as per the GPL means freedom.
The License allows users to modify and distribute software however their needs call for. Unlike other proprietary or closed source licenses, GPL does not seek to impose restrictions and limitations on the freedom of others. Compare GPL with the EULA (End User License Agreement) that often accompanies closed source software–GPL allows for change to the software as per client needs, share and distribute the software, or even share and distribute the changed product.
The license allows copying and distributing verbatim copies of the Program's source code as received, in any medium, provided that copies are conspicuously and appropriately published, have an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
A fee may be charged for the physical act of transferring a copy, and a warranty protection option may be offered in exchange for a fee.
Copies of the Program or any portion of it may be modified, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that conditions are met.
Basic Permissions. All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms unlimited permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
This licence type allows users to make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force.
Users may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having them make modifications exclusively for users, or provide users with facilities for running those works, provided that users comply with the terms of this License in conveying all material for which users do not control copyright. Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10 makes it unnecessary.
Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, each Contributor hereby grants to a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare Derivative Works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute the Work and such Derivative Works in Source or Object form.
Grant of Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, each Contributor hereby grants to a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable (except as stated in this section) patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Work, where such license applies only to those patent claims licensable by such Contributor that are necessarily infringed by their Contribution(s) alone or by combination of their Contribution(s) with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If a patent litigation is instituted against any entity (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Work or a Contribution incorporated within the Work constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses granted under this License for that Work shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
Redistribution The license allows for reproduction and distribution copies of the Work or Derivative Works thereof in any medium, with or without modifications, and in Source or Object form, provided that license conditions are met. Source: http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0
