GeneralGot to read those licenses Pin

Something that I have been doing for years is actually reading licenses for software that I use and that companies use. This goes all the way back to when books were the only real source for code.

I have never worked with anyone else that does this. Even met a few people that seemed to think it was a waste of time.

Yet I do occasionally find problems with the code that is being used.

My perception over the last 10 years is that it has really gotten out of hand because people start importing libraries that in total might encompass hundreds of other libraries.

And then something like the following comes along that makes it much more relevant to understand that a library that seems like a good idea to include might require actually paying someone for it.

The Commons Clause will destroy open source | Drew DeVault’s Blog[^]

Note that the article above does not call out that this new license does not restrict it to just products but also services.
