Various Types of License

If you've ever tried a code package for a particular template that you picked up from github, for example, you'll find a description of the license of that website's template code. A website license is a type of software license that allows a user to install a software package on multiple computers simultaneously, such as at a specific site (a facility) or at a company.(Source: [wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Site_license).)

When you buy, download or download and use a template / software for your personal project, the product is usually subject to a set of rules that the purchased product needs to be updated and has the necessary support on the one hand. And on the other hand, adherence to copyright, thought and innovation, requires a set of rules to use the product.

So far, you may be wondering about what types of licenses are there and which one should I use for my project?. Alright, that question is on the right track and according to the discussion on this page. You can adjust by starting to read from this sentence.

The license is divided into 2 types based on the type:

  • Non-Open Source license or closed license; and
  • Open source or open source license.

And divided into 41 kinds of licenses (as far as I know at this time) based on their intended use:

  • 2 types of closed licenses; and
  • 39 types of open licenses. Which is broadly divided into 8 types of licenses.

1. Non-Open Source or Closed Source License

I personally feel that I have often heard and seen discussions about open source licenses, but for closed source licenses it is a unique experience. It is very difficult to find references to this closed source license, but thankfully, I managed to find and summarize the information about this license into a unified whole that is educational for the internet public to enjoy.

The following are some Non-Open Source licenses, including:

  1. Classic Ownership License
  2. Sun Community Source License

Closed source license also known as proprietary license. That is a strict rule that governs the ownership of a copyrighted work of software or code. A closed license is a set of licenses with respect to the intellectual property rights of others.

As described above, I have listed what licenses are included in this closed license.

1. Classic Proprietary License And divided into 41 kinds of licenses (as far as I know at this time) based on their intended use:

  • 2 types of closed licenses; and
  • 39 types of open licenses. Which is broadly divided into 8 types of licenses.

A classic proprietary license is a license that may contain a description of the ownership of the software copyrighted work or open source licensed code (under more permissive licenses, such as the MIT and BSD Licenses). Copyrighted works of software or source code under these licenses typically hide licensed code which is very likely not to be included in an open source project, unless the code is licensed under a parallel non-proprietary license that permits such use.

The provisions in this type of license, such as stipulations on copyrighted works and related documentation, are the results of writings from an author who are only licensed and are not sold to consumers or users. These terms are substantially similar to the effects of language used in open source and free software licenses. The only rights granted are those specifically described in the license; all other rights reserved. Due to the closed nature of licensed software or source code, consumers are not allowed to determine for themselves whether software is infringing, even if they have the inclination or resources to do so.

With this license too, we will see that a product has very strict restrictions on the use of the product, that even end users may not distribute it at all or install more than one copy at a time. Due to these limitations, each user of the software, whether on the network or otherwise, must have an individual license. This type of restriction is contained in almost every proprietary license and is universally enforced by the courts. Owners of copyrighted works with this type of license will also typically include a prohibition against any attempt to derive any utility from the copyrighted work for use other than in the licensed copyrighted work.

Because this type of license is so strict, let's make some kind of government Instructions about these license restrictions:

  1. This license assigns ownership (partial and or whole) of a product to the person or individual author.
  2. This license places very strict limitations on the end user of a product in use or distribution.
  3. This license assigns all responsibility for violations that may occur to its users.
  4. This license provides a limited warranty for media carrying the Software code. Commercial software usually has at least a minimal warranty.
  5. This license has a tendency to create evolutionary dead ends. When the creator of a source code or software copyright goes bankrupt, all the utility of their code dies with them.

2. Sun Community Resources License (SCSL)

The Sun Community Source License (SCSL) is a license that is similar to but not the same as an open source license. Owners of copyrighted works under this license are usually very careful not to characterize this license as open source. This license does not fall within the definition of Open Source but incorporates some elements of open source principles. This license was developed by Sun to incorporate some of the benefits of open source development into two of Sun's proprietary products, Jini and the Java programming language.

Therefore, according to the emphasis, this license is free to use as long as it contains the emphasis and includes development tends to be for the community. This SCSL license does not refer to “user” or “you” of other licenses, but to Community Members. At this point, you're probably clear.

2. Open Source or Open Source License

There are many open source licenses that you need to know about, such as; MIT, GNU GPL Apache 2.0, Creative Commons, and BSD, each with its own set of features that define even project ownership and credibility. What are the licenses that are included in this license, let's read the following reading with a piece of cake and a cup of coffee, because the journey of your experience on this page will be very long.
