Academic Free License (AFL) v. 3.0

— just copying an e-mail from Christophe below about a possible license: AFL —

Hello to the reproducible research group 😉

Although I should still read it once more (and in its entirety) to understand it, this license could be a good candidate for Reproducible Research.
Does anyone know about it and if it is good or bad in any sense?




One important issue to discuss is under which license all our reproducible code and information should go. Currently most of our stuff is under GPL, but that does not permit even ourselves to commercialize things later. All derived code and products have to necessarily go under GPL too in that case. So maybe not that great if someone would want to do a startup based on his PhD research.
