Open Source

RIoT International is familiar with a number of open source licenses:

  • Apache 2.0
  • BSD
  • GNU General Public License (GPL)
  • GNU Library (or Lessor) Public License (LGPL)
  • MIT
  • Mozilla Public License
  • and many more

The use of open source has increased in popularity recently; however, each license comes with it's own set of caveats that may have direct or even indirect effect on the value of technology. Understanding each license and identifying which are "free" to use for commercial purposes is vital when using open source.
