Where can I find a single, comprehensive list of known software licenses? If possible, it would be useful if it covered both FLOSS licenses and commercial (possibly closed-source) licenses, but it would be helpful even if it only covered FLOSS licenses. I am currently aware of the following lists:
- Opensource.org's alphabetical list of licenses
- The Linux Foundation's SPDX License List
- The Free Software Foundation's Various Licenses and Comments about Them
- Wikipedia's "Comparison of free and open-source software licenses" page
There is some overlap, but also some differences between these lists, so it does not appear that any one list completely subsumes the others. In addition, it's unclear how comprehensive they are. (For a point of comparison, Black Duck states their knowledgebase "includes information on more than 2,400 unique software licenses", which must be more than are contained in the lists above.)
The information I'm looking for about each license is minimal: a name, an acronym (if there is one), a version, and a link to a page describing the license. Licenses written in languages other than English are acceptable.
(In case it matters, my project is an open-source ontology effort.)
