GNU, GPL, Open Source Eric S. Raymond is one of the three big figures in open source, together with Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman. During a talk for the Long Island Linux User Group, he made some interesting statements about the GPL, namely that the GPL is no longer needed due to the way the open source movement works.

"You are mistaken about Firefox as it is tri-licensed under GPL, LGPL, and MPL.

I'm not, the MPL still applies. Also, I wonder why I'm being modded down so fast. Does telling the truth shake some neurons?
Why don't you read the MPL in the first place? MPL is not BSD.
MPL is a weak copyleft license. Source code copied or changed under the MPL must stay under the MPL.
