7 tools for cutting through software legalese

EULAs got your eyes swimming? Head spinning from open source licensing terminology? These resources help you get the straight dope

Andrew M. St. Laurent's Understanding Open Source and Free Software Licensingwas originally published by O'Reilly in 2004, but the vast majority of it remains relevant and timely. The best part, though, is that it's available free from O'Reilly's website, so it costs nothing to download a copy and educate yourself.

Finally, the quality of titles in Wikibooks may be wildly erratic, but the FOSS Licensing text, contributed by the International Open Source Network, provides a good overview of the subject, although it's relatively brief and again most of its details are U.S.-centric.
