The Adaptive Public License (APL) is an Open Source license from the University of Victoria. It is a weak copyleft, adaptable template license that has been approved by the Open Source Initiative.

The Initial Contributor for a project sets up the license conditions for that project by choosing their specific options from the license template. Choices include:

  • whether or not to grant patent rights
  • governing jurisdiction
  • limited attribution and branding clauses
  • the scope of how widely the source can be distributed before being obliged to contribute code changes
  • the extent to which changes need to be documented

Selected Programs Licensed Under the APL Edit

  • Mamook - Web-based Recruitment Software
