Is the use of the EUPL licence compulsory?

No, any licence that is recognized by the OSI (Open Source Initiative), or the FSF ( Free Software Foundation) will be accepted for distributing projects hosted on Joinup. For end-user applications and solutions that should be protected from “appropriation”, the use of the European Union Public Licence is highly recommended as common legal framework across Europe, because it is valid in all official European languages. The EUPL is especially written in consideration of European law and practice.

Joinup has a “licence wizard” to facilitate licence selection.
