Best/preferable license type for ProcessWire modules?

Recommended Posts

What is the preferable license type for custom processor modules?
MIT, MPL 2.0 or GPL?

There doesn't seem to be many differences between these license types. ProcessWire itself is licensed under MPL 2.0. Some modules use MIT and some MPL or GPL.

Which license type do you suggest for modules?

You can read short excerpts of the different licenses here https://tldrlegal.com/license/mozilla-public-license-2.0-(mpl-2)

and choose the one, that fits your needs best.

I prefer a license where the derivate has to be distributed/published under the same license for example the LGPL-3.0  https://tldrlegal.com/license/gnu-lesser-general-public-license-v3-(lgpl-3)
