PREVIEW - SPDX License List

The SPDX License List is an integral part of the SPDX Specification. The SPDX License List itself is a list of commonly found licenses and exceptions used in free and open or collaborative software, data, hardware, or documentation. The SPDX License List includes a standardized short identifier, the full name, the license text, and a canonical permanent URL for each license and exception.

The purpose of the SPDX License List is to enable efficient and reliable identification of such licenses and exceptions in an SPDX document, in source files or elsewhere.

Version: 50f3f52 2024-04-11

Note: You can sort by each column by clicking on the column header. By default, the table sorts by the Identifier column.

Deprecated License Identifiers

SPDX endeavors to never change the SPDX license identifiers. However, sometimes there has been a compelling reason to deprecate a license identifier, such as to accommodate improved SPDX license expressions or when we have found a duplicate license. When a license identifier is "deprecated" on the SPDX License List, it effectively means that there is an updated license identifier and the deprecated license identifier, while remaining valid, should no longer be used. The URL to each deprecated license is retained and those license pages are updated to note the deprecation. Some reasons for deprecation are as follows:
