Taxonomy of Open Source Licenses

Via a discussion thread at slashdot on the closing of opencontent.org comes a reference to this handy little table that compares the license-type (shareware, freeware, various forms of open source) with the various ‘features’ of these licenses (redistribution, usage limitations, source code availability…). Quite handy for sorting out some of the subtle points of the various types of open source licenses. Could be used in conjunction with the current list of approved open source licenses from the Open Source Initiative. – SWL
