Ends its own licence


Open Source CRM software maker SugarCRM has bowed to user pressure and signed up for version 3 of the GNU general public license (GPLv3) for the next release.

The company has been controversial in the Open Source community because it has insisted on running its own Sugar Public License. Users of SugarCRM's general discussion open source forum have been objecting to the Sugar licence saying that it was is mad, bad, and may be dangerous.

Sugar Community Edition 5.0, the open source version of the SugarCRM software, due out in September, will be licensed under GPLv3.

John Roberts, SugarCRM CEO and co-founder was quoted by InfoWorld as saying that GPLv3 was a great license.

It's more copyleft, more liberal, and less restrictive than our current license." The beta version of Sugar Community Edition 5.0 ships within two weeks and it will also be licensed under GPLv3.
