Amazon RDS 的 RI 也支援彈性計價了

AWS 宣佈 RDS 的 RI 也支援彈性計價了:「Amazon RDS Reserved Instances Offer Instance Size Flexibility」。 也就是說跟 EC2 的 RI 方式切齊,買 db.m4.2xlarge 的 RI 後,可以用在兩台 db.m4.xlarge 上: For example, let’s say you purchased a db.m4.2xlarge MySQL RI in US East (N. Virginia). The … Continue reading

Uber 在倫敦將會被停業

Uber 在倫敦將會被停業:「Uber has license to operate in London revoked」、「London regulator announces Uber ban」、「Uber London loses licence to operate」。 更精確的說是不再續發 license,舊的 license 只到 9/30: Transport for London (TfL), which operates public transport in the capital, has made the decision not to … Continue reading

Facebook 決定修改原先的授權條款

Facebook 在各個單位的砲火下決定將本來的 BSD+Patents 授權改為 MIT license:「Relicensing React, Jest, Flow, and Immutable.js」。 Next week, we are going to relicense our open source projects React, Jest, Flow, and Immutable.js under the MIT license. 後面講了很多場面話,聽聽就好... 改成 MIT license 最大的理由應該還是在 PR 面的傷害。

Matt Mullenweg 決定對 React 的專利議題投下反對票

React 的專利問題繼續燒... (可以參考「React 的專利授權議題」,不過陸陸續續還有發生一些事情沒寫...) 在 Facebook 表態他們不會修改 React 的條款後,Matt Mullenweg (WordPress 的共同創造人,以及 WordPress.com 現在的老大) 直接宣佈了 Gutenberg (WordPress 新的 editor) 將全面停用 React 改用新的 library 開發: [...] I'm here to say that the Gutenberg team is going to take a step back … Continue reading

React 的專利授權議題

在 ASF (Apache Software Foundation) 全面禁止 Facebook 的 BSD+PATENTS 後 (「Apache Foundation 宣佈禁止使用 Facebook BSD+Patents 的軟體」),整件事情開始熱起來了... 簡單來說,Facebook 有意為之,而且不打算撤回這個有攻擊性的授權模式,參考「Explaining React's license」這邊官方的說明以及有人寫了一篇解讀:「If you’re a startup, you should not use React (reflecting on the BSD + patents license)」。 Facebook 內的意見其實也不一樣,像是 Yarn 之所以沒有 PATENTS … Continue reading

Apache Foundation 宣佈禁止使用 Facebook BSD+Patents 的軟體

在「RocksDB Integrations」這邊討論到 RocksDB 裡 Facebook 所使用的 Facebook BSD+Patents License。 不過因為 RocksDB 最近在換 license (從 Facebook BSD+Patents 換到 Apache License, Version 2.0),移除了 PATENTS 內的限制,需要看 PATENTS 的舊檔案可以在 PATENTS 這邊看到。 Chris Mattmann 正式發出決議禁用 Facebook BSD+Patents License。(參考最後) 另外也提到了 Facebook 是故意埋下這些限制: Note also Roy's comment … Continue reading

美國聯邦法院認定 Open Source License 是有效的強制性合約

這是是韓國廠商 Hancom 在加州被告上法院:「A federal court has ruled that an open-source license is an enforceable contract」。 But after it began using Ghostscript in its software in 2013, Hancom did neither: it did not open-source its software, and it did not pay … Continue reading

MP3 專利全數過期

看到有人提到,查了維基百科上面的 MP3 條目,看起來在 4/16 就全部都過期了: The basic MP3 decoding and encoding technology is patent-free in the European Union, all patents having expired there by 2012 at the latest. In the United States, the technology became substantially patent-free on 16 April … Continue reading
