Apple changes the APSL license

Apple changes the APSL licenselogomacitynet1200wide 1

Apple has modified the 'Apple Public Source License' by updating it to version 1.2 and removing all the constraints that had been criticized by the Open Source community. It is no longer necessary, for example, to distribute changes made for personal use, there is no longer need to notify Apple of their changes during the distribution phase (sections 1.4 and 1.8) and all the clauses are much clearer and simpler for both parties.The announcement is very important and further protection against all the communities and projects that they are evolving around the Darwin project and other Apple "Open Source" projects.

Recall that with the creation of Darwin under the APSL license, Apple was the first operating system provider to make its source code available to the public and to base its system software strategy on Open Source technologies. With the launch of Darwin Streaming Server content providers, developers and server companies can build RTP and RSTP streaming servers for any platform, without the need to license expensive proprietary software.
