 OpenSolaris Licence

OpenSolaris has been released under the CDDL (Common Development and Distribution License). Sun has this FAQ about it.
"CDDL is the Common Development and Distribution License. It is an open source license that takes the well-known Mozilla Public License (MPL) and makes it reusable without modification. We wanted a copyleft license that provided the protections and freedoms necessary for true open source, as well as enabling creation of larger works for commercial purposes."
