Open-Source Software Licensing
What is open-source software licensing?
The creation of free and open-source software is made easier by open-source licenses. Laws governing intellectual property prohibit the alteration and dissemination of creative works. Free and open-source software licenses take advantage of these already-existing legal frameworks to give freedoms that encourage sharing and cooperation. These licenses enable creators to freely use, alter, and share software and other works of art, fostering the growth of a sizable and thriving open-source project ecosystem. However, the use of open-source licenses has been questioned as a result of the growing commercialization of the technology sector.
