RadixWare is available under the terms of Mozilla Public License (MPL) version 2.0. The MPL is a simple copyleft license. The MPL's "file-level" copyleft is designed to encourage contributors to share modifications they make to our code, whilst still allowing them to combine our code with code under other licenses (open or proprietary) with minimal restrictions.

The MPL fills a useful space in the spectrum of free and open source software licenses, sitting between the Apache license, which does not require modifications to be shared, and the GNU family of licenses, which requires modifications to be shared under a much broader set of circumstances than the MPL.

If you have a license issue or related question, please review the online license at the URL provided. The gist of the license is that you may use, modify, and/or distribute RadixWare as-is. If you have further questions, please see the MPL license FAQ.

Nothing. RadixWare is available for anyone (including individuals and companies) to use for any purpose under the Mozilla Public License version 2.0. Under the Mozilla Public License, you only have obligations if you want to distribute RadixWare outside your organisation.

Nothing. The right to make private modifications (within a company or organisation is considered private) and distribute RadixWare is guaranteed by Mozilla Public License.

As long as the people who distributed RadixWare to you have complied with the Mozilla Public License, you should not have to do anything. To check and see if the people who distributed RadixWare to you have complied with the Mozilla Public License, look for the notice that tells you where the software is available in source code form (check that it complies with Section 3.2(a) of the Mozilla Public License), and then check that the source code is available in that place, including a notice that informs you that the Source Code is available under the terms of the Mozilla Public License (i.e., check that it complies with Section 3.1 of the Mozilla Public License).

You must inform the recipients where they can get the source code for RadixWare code in the executable program or library you are distributing (i.e., you must comply with Section 3.2 of Mozilla Public License). You may distribute any executables you create under a license of your choosing, as long as that license does not interfere with the recipients' rights to the source code under the terms of the Mozilla Public License.

To see the complete set of requirements, please read the license. However, in general:

  • You must inform the recipients that the source code is made available to them under the terms of the Mozilla Public License (Section 3.1), including any modifications (as defined in Section 1.10) that you have created.
  • You must make the grants described in Section 2 of the license.
  • You must respect the restrictions on removing or altering notices in the source code (Section 3.4).

You must make available the MPL-licensed portions of RadixWare source code available as described in the previous question, and inform the recipients how they can obtain this source code (Section 3.2 of Mozilla Public License).

No. The Mozilla Public License requires that modifications (as defined in Section 1.10 of the license) to RadixWare must be licensed under the MPL and made available to anyone to whom you distribute the source code. However, new files containing no RadixWare code are not modifications and therefore do not need to be distributed under the terms of the MPL, even if you create Larger Work (as defined in Section 1.7) by using, compiling, or distributing the non-MPL files together with MPL-licensed files. This allows, for example, RadixWare to be statically linked to, and distributed, as part of a larger proprietary piece of software, which would not generally be possible under the terms of stronger copyleft licenses.

Yes, by creating "Larger Work" under the terms of Section 3.3 of Mozilla Public License. In particular, with regards to RadixWare two requirements must be met:

The Mozilla Public License uses "distribute" in the sense of delivering a copy of the software to another person or entity. The Mozilla Public License does not use "distribute" to mean "make available" in the sense of "making functionality available over the web without delivery of a copy of the software." An example could be, that in a web-based application, the code which runs on the server is not 'distributed' to the user, but the code which is sent to the client (e.g. HTML, CSS, JavaScript) does count as 'distributed'.

Section 3.4 of Mozilla Public License prohibits most changes to license notices that are seen when looking at the source code. We do not encourage anyone to change the licensing and notice statements which are displayed when the software is executed. However, such changes are permitted by the Mozilla Public License, so that source code can be reused between software with very different user interfaces.

RadixWare is available for download, for free by anyone, from our website and mirrors. We do not sell it; we give it away subject to the Mozilla Public License terms and conditions. Neither do we provide formal or commercial support for any of our packages.

Yes. It is the licensing scheme's intention to enable proprietary developers to write applications running in a RadixWare environment.

As long as the people who distributed RadixWare to you have complied with the Mozilla Public License, you should not have to do anything. To check and see if the people who distributed RadixWare to you have complied with the Mozilla Public License, look for the notice that tells you where the software is available in source code form (check that it complies with Section 3.2(a) of the Mozilla Public License), and then check that the source code is available in that place, including a notice that informs you that the Source Code is available under the terms of the Mozilla Public License (i.e., check that it complies with Section 3.1 of the Mozilla Public License).

You can download the code base, install it, and modify it as needed. If you modify the code, we encourage you to contribute it back to the RadixWare community under MPL 2.0 in the RadixWare forums. If you distribute (under the MPL understanding of distribution which is the delivery of a copy of the software to another person or entity) your modifications (as defined in Section 1.10 of the license) then you must make your modifications available in source code form licensed under the MPL to the users to whom you have distributed your software.

The simple rule to follow is if you modify any functionality or files in RadixWare for a purpose other than configuration or adding a new file in the RadixWare source code, then you have created a modification. All modifications of MPL 2.0 licensed products are subject to the MPL 2.0 license.
