» Microsoft gets the open-source licensing nod from the OSI | All about Microsoft | ZDNet.com

Strange days indeed

Microsoft was awarded an official Open Source Initiative (OSI) approval for the two Shared Source licenses it submitted for consideration in August — but not without agreeing to some OSI-requested changes first.

On October 16, Microsoft officials announced that the Microsoft Permissive License (MS-PL) — which is now known as the Microsoft Public License (MSP) — and Microsoft Community License (MS-CL) — now designated as the Microsoft Reciprocal License (MSL) had gotten the OSI Board’s nod. Microsoft did not submit its Microsoft Reference License (MS-RL) for OSI consideration.
