The Voidspace Open Source License

 

 

This is the OSI Approved freeware license that most of the Voidspace modules and programs are available under [1]. It's often referred to as the BSD License.

It is a very unrestrictive license but it comes with the usual disclaimer. This is free software: test it, break it, just don't blame me if it eats your data ! Of course if it does, let me know and I'll fix the problem so that it doesn't happen to anyone else Smile .
