Aka: (traditional/revised) BSDL
Includes: BSD-style Licenses
A type of Free Software license by which a developer may distribute his source code.
The name comes from the BSD Operating Systems (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, etc) which were distributed under this license. Linux, meanwhile, is distributed under another Open-Source license: the GNU Public License, which differs from BSDL in that it requires making changes public. A variety of other open-source and free software licenses (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/index.php) exist.
