The Terracotta Public License (we'll call it the "TPL") is based on the Mozilla Public License,
(we'll call it the "MPL"), with a few modifications to make it specific to Terracotta,
including an attribution clause. The TPL gives you the freedom to use Terracotta, modify its source code, and
distribute it for free. TPL 2.0 is based upon MPL 2.0 and TPL 1.0 is based upon MPL 1.1.
If you distribute Terracotta, or software that you built with Terracotta, the attribution clause requires you to
display the words "Powered by Terracotta" in your user interfaces. To "distribute" means to give or
sell software that includes Terracotta code to someone outside of your company or organization. Keep in mind that the
attribution clause doesn't apply to most end users of Terracotta. If you're using Terracotta, but not
distributing it, then you don't need to display the attribution.
Software AG, the parent company of Terracotta, Inc., has both issued patents and outstanding applications covering
the Terracotta Server Open Source Kit. The TPL 2.0 license covers the following listed patents and patent applications,
along with any other patent or application covering the Terracotta Server Open Source Kit and Terracotta Offheap Library
that is owned by Software AG.
