And the license is... LGPL

May 31, 2007

We have decided to license Jojo CMS under the GNU Lesser GPL license.

We did toy with the idea of using a commercial license, but at the end of the day, developers are already familiar with the LGPL license, it plays well with open-source and proprietary software, and it means less restrictions for our users.

The Lesser GPL license means that Jojo is free, and you can use it for commercial or non-commercial purposes on as many sites as you like with no complicated and sneaky license terms.

The LGPL license is less restrictive than the GPL license used by many other CMS systems such as Wordpress and Drupal. We think that our users may want to use Jojo as part of non-GPL software applications, and felt the LGPL was a better choice for us.
