The GPL compatiblity overview compiled by the GNU foundation does not mention the Eclipse Distribution License.

Is this license compatible with the AGPL v3?

1 Answer 1


The Eclipse Distribution License (EDL) is just an alternative name for the BSD 3-clause license, listed by the GNU project as the modified BSD license.

This is a highly permissive license that is widely compatible with other licenses, including the GPL and AGPL in all versions.
