Maybe this isn't a good place to ask this question, but I couldn't find a better site. Here goes:
I have two open source projects (libraries, not applications) that I distribute under the Boost license, which you can read at http://www.boost.org/LICENSE_1_0.txt
. I would like to change the license now, because this license is not recognized by the OSI, and open source awards require a recognized license. Is it allowed to change the license?
And which recognized license would be most like the Boost license? I've thought about the BSD license and the MIT license. This part of the BSD license is not clear to me: "Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution." Does this mean that if a commercial software company uses my library in their application, they have to add the copyright notice? I definitely don't want that. The MIT license is less clear about it, while the Boost license is very clear that it is allowed to use it in binary form without copyright notice.
