Alternatives to LGPL available?

Oct 31, 2011 at 12:26 PM


Just stumbled over this very promising project. Before I deep dive a quick question berforehand. Is the source available under a license other than LGPL? When working on commercial products, LGPL is often too restrictive and sometimes even ruled out by contract. Could you think of offering this unter the MS-PL or another less restrictive license?

Thanks for your thoughts,

As an addendum, the license that comes with the sources (DocX/License/License.html) is actually the MS-PL, while the project license here on CodePlex is set to LGPL, so maybe you just might want to change that?

Hi John,

thank you for pointing this out. I have updated codeplex to reflect the actual licence of the project which is MS-PL.

Kind regards,
