== OpenVision Variant ==
 +
=== Notes ===
 +
This license contains a title preservation clause, which can literally be read as a purported requirement to assign copyright in derivative works upstream to OpenVision. However, the use of the word "retained" suggests instead that it should be read as a mere assertion of persistence of copyright in derivative works.
 +
 +
Since this would automatically occur, as long as code persists from the original OpenVision copyrighted code base, under this interpretation, this becomes functionally equivalent to MIT.

OpenVision Variant

Notes

This license contains a title preservation clause, which can literally be read as a purported requirement to assign copyright in derivative works upstream to OpenVision. However, the use of the word "retained" suggests instead that it should be read as a mere assertion of persistence of copyright in derivative works.

Since this would automatically occur, as long as code persists from the original OpenVision copyrighted code base, under this interpretation, this becomes functionally equivalent to MIT.

Cheusov variant

Notes

This variant does not give explicit permission to redistribute unmodified copies, however, since it does give permission to "copy" unmodifed copies, we are interpreting it that way. Also, since it does grant explicit permission to redistribute modified code, we feel the intent was to grant permission to redistribute unmodified copies as well. That said, this license is poorly worded, and we do not recommend its use.
