What is MPL?

The Mozilla Public License (MPL) is a free and open source software license. Version 1.0 was developed by Mitchell Baker .The MPL is characterized as a hybridization of the modified BSD license and GNU General Public License. The MPL is the license for the Mozilla Application Suite, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and other Mozilla software.

The MPL has been adapted by others as a license for their software, most notably Sun Microsystems, as the Common Development and Distribution License for OpenSolaris, the open source version of the Solaris 10 operating system, and by Adobe, as the license for its Flex product line.
