Why make a new open source software license?  MPL 2.0 (part 3)

I recently had the honor of being a guest on the JBoss Asylum podcast, hosted by Red Hat's Emmanuel Bernard and Max Rydahl Andersen. We discussed various topics at the intersection of law and software (particularly in relation to open source), including the

definition of open source, the basic taxonomy of open source licenses, a high-level overview of what lawyers call intellectual property and what a license is, license compatibility, contributor agreements, and the fact that I have no favorite license.

I encourage anyone interested in such subject matter to listen to the episode.
