The licence wizard is a guide to help you to find the most appropriate licence to distribute your software. It covers some of the most common situations, without providing the guarantees of a specific legal consultancy. In case you prefer selecting a licence based on its content, why not trying the Joinup Licensing Assistant (JLA)?
Which situation fits the most with yours?
- You have entirely developed the software (or it was developed for you by a contractor) and you own full copyright.
- You have developed and integrated software, but other components where used or combined. The resulting application forms (as perceived from the end user point of view) a single program.
- You have received and modified the software from another licensor (i.e. you have downloaded and modified the source: localisation in your language, adding functionalities etc.)
Note: this wizard has found some inspiration in a similar work distributed by the NOiV Administration in The Netherlands, the "Licentiewijzer" (in Dutch).
