Open Source License Agreement

A guarantee that the Tolven code remains open

Open source software is distributed under a variety of licenses certified by the Open Source Initiative.  Tolven software is licensed under the L-GPL or Lesser General Public License.

A key long-term goal for adopting the L-GPL is to ensure the Tolven platform and applications are widely adopted and extended by an expanding network of users, developers and partners in a sustainable manner in both academic and commercial settings. The L-GPL is the most business friendly license, as it promotes software freedom without affecting any proprietary software used in conjunction. Further, the L-GPL ensures stability and consistency by disallowing proprietary modifications to the core Tolven software.
