License explanation

The license for the Dirlot utility defines terms and conditions on which you can use the software. Basically, it allows you to use the utility on your personal computer and distribute it. From the other side, it prohibits to charge any payment for using of the software and forbids to distribute changed versions.

In addition, the license set the rules of contribution code into Dirlot project and contains other sections both usual and useful from the legal point of view such as disclaimer of warranty etc.

Essentially, this document is used to determine and protect the rights of authors (both initial developer and contributors) and end users of the software.

Open source licenses

There are a lot of well-established licenses that both conform and contradicts to The Open Source Definition by Open Source Initiative. Some of the most famous open source licenses are listed below:

Note, please, that the Dirlot Public License (DPL) is based on Mozilla Public License (MPL). Still DPL is not "open source" as in relation to The Open Source Definition in contrast to GPL, MPL, APL and many others. That is, the Dirlot itself is open source of course while its license isn't.
