The Eclipse Public License
The EPL is a fully OSI compliant license.
The EPL is a reciprocal license. with a strong Copyleft
The EPL gives patent grants to the original work and to enhanced versions based
on the original work, but not to other code.
The EPL contains rules that help to defend against patent trolls.
The EPL in collaborative works
The EPL permits only contributions and anhancements to the original work but does not allow
to use code from a EPL licensed work in another work. So the EPL is even more restrictive than the GPL.
For this reason, the OSSCC does not recommend to use the EPL for new projects.
