I have recently learned about several cool open source add-on tools and libraries for Microsoft Visual Studio. The tools just help you be more productive; the libraries would get linked into the corporate code base.
I have listed all these cool tools and libraries on a spreadsheet and I'm going to run down the type of license each one is under. So far, amongst my cool libraries, I see MIT, BSD, Apache License Version 2.0. However, there could be more in the future.
How can I find out (or better yet, can you just list) the popular licenses which are NOT compatible with internal corporate use (not to be distributed outside the company)? And for an extra thank you, can you say or point to an explanation. I'm not a lawyer and reading the fine print of these licenses gives me a headache.
I want to be prepared to explain why using the allowable licenses is OK.
