The Cooperative
Software License


The Cooperative Software License (CSL) is a copy-far-
left (as opposed to copyleft) license that aims to rectify
some of the issues that arise when using a copyleft
license such as the GPL, namely, that your work can still
be used in some extent by commercial entities and
other for-profit ventures. It is based on the Peer
Production License, and is adapted to be more
applicable to software.

Licenses like the CSL and any Creative Commons Non-
Commercial License are not libre (free as in freedom)
software licenses, as they restrict the freedoms of
certain user groups and use cases. This is why the CSL
is classed as a copy-far-left (as opposed to copyleft)
license. It is therefore incompatible with (and thus
cannot link to) software released under licenses such as
the GPLv3 or the MPLy2. It's important to keep this in
mind when using the CSL for your project. The CSL is,
however, compatible with less restrictive open source
licenses, such as the MIT License or Creative Commons
0. The Free Software Foundation lists reasons why the
Peer Production License (the basis of the CSL) is not a
free as in libre license.
