Please take a look-- feel free to make any improvements or suggestions. I want this to be a viable CopyFarLeft license for software!
The goal is to create a license that:
- Is Copyleft (source-code must be distributed if requested along with the binary)
- Only allows commercial redistribution by worker-cooperatives and other groups directed democratically, where workers own the means of production (basically, the PPL's anti-capitalist/anti-alienation nature)
It's based off the Peer Production License which itself's from the CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0. Since it's based off of the CC license, the PPL's terrible for software. Anyone can share software under the PPL without sharing the source code! Since the PPL is the only CopyFarLeft license, that means there are no CopyFarLeft options for software…
Let's fix that with this license, shall we? :)
For easy reading, you can see the differences between the PPL and this license here.
Basically, I added 1-J, 1-K, 4-C, and 8-C.
My definition of software (1-J) needs some work, and 4-C and 8-C might be unnecessarily redundant.
