Licence Libre du Québec – Réciprocité versus - Réciprocité fortea redline (diff) showing changes

The partial comparison below starts with sections of the unofficial English translation of Licence Libre du Québec – Réciprocité (LiLiQ-R) version 1.1 and produces the corresponding sections of Licence Libre du Québec – Réciprocité forte (LiLiQ-R+) version 1.1:

Québec Free and Open-Source Licence – Strong Reciprocity (LiLiQ-R+)

2. Definitions

“derived software”: any original software developed by a licensee, other than the software or modified software, that produces or reproduces all or a substantial part of the software;

“modified software”: any modification made by a licensee to one of the software’s source code files, or any new source code file that integrates the software or a substantial part of it;

“software”: a copyright-protected work such as a computer program and its documentation, stipulated by the copyright owner to be subject to the terms of this licence.

4.1. Reciprocity

Every time the licensee distributes the software, the licensor grants the recipient an interest in the software in accordance with the terms of this licence. The licensee must grant an interest in accordance with the terms of this licence for any modified derived software distributed.

Every time the licensee distributes the software, or modified or derived software, the licensee is obliged to distribute its source code in the manner prescribed in the third paragraph of section 3.

“Derived” above is “dérivé” in the original French.

Interesting.
