Jini License Unveiled

Wesley Felter writes "Sun has released a draft of their Jini(TM) Technology Public License (JTPL). I'm not sure if it meets the Open Source(TM) Definition or not. Also, Sun's Alan Baratz says that even though Java is not Open Source, it is open enough, because any company with piles of money can suggest changes. RMS is qutoed as as saying that it's too late for Sun to fix their mistake." You know, I fear the whole NPL/MPL deal has brought about a new dillemma - a plethora of different but similar identical licenses that all meet the Debian Free Software Guidlines (DFSG) definition (also the Open Source guidlines).
