Lesser Open Bee License 1.3

Download text of the License

License is made for coordinator to develop project and allow participants to include associated works. It was originally developed and used for Bee-Plane project. It has been made public in order to develop community of open source projects within industry. Aeronautical players are not used to have open source projects. Open Source is now common in IT projects. We try to make it more common. A previous 1.2 version was used in 2012.
