Hi all,

The LGPLv3+static link license we've used for years has worked well except in one regard: as a custom license, it's hard for some legal teams to digest.

The MPL v2, which came out in 2012, solves this problem while keeping the goal of sharing patches.

It's not practical to relicense libzmq to MPLv2, however it is for other projects. We're starting with CZMQ, and will broaden this to other projects over time.

Does anyone have objections to this shift? If not, I'll document it on the wiki page as a recommendation for new projects. The C4.1 process already has MPLv2 as an allowed license.
