We are thrilled to announce that Nokia has transferred the copyright of
Plan 9 to the Plan 9 Foundation. This transfer applies to all of the
Plan 9 from Bell Labs code, from the earliest days through their final
release.

The most exciting immediate effect of this is that the Plan 9 Foundation
is making the historical 1st through 4th editions of Plan 9 available
under the terms of the MIT license. These are the releases as they
existed at the time, with minimal changes to reflect the above.

1st and 2nd edition were never released as open source software, and
both (but especially 1st edition) were only available to a very small
number of people. 3rd and 4th were previously available as open source,
but under a license which was problematic for some people (especially
the 3rd edition). We think making these available under the MIT license
is something that's going to be a significant benefit for all projects
using Plan 9 code. While this doesn't automatically change the license
on any downstream projects, and you're welcome to keep using the LPL if
you like, you now have the option of switching to MIT, which we think
most everyone will find preferable.

Obviously, for folks in the Plan 9 community, there isn't a way to say
"thank you" to Bell Labs, and its various parent organizations, that's
really adequate. None of us would be talking about any of this if it
weren't for the work done there for decades. All of us here at the Plan
9 Foundation express our sincerest thanks to the team at Nokia who made
this possible, the Plan 9 alumni who supported the effort, and the Plan
9 community who have kept kernels booting and the userland useful.

The historical releases are available right now at:
        https://p9f.org/dl/

Thank you for your time,
Anthony Sorace
Plan 9 Foundation

That's real good news! Thank you to all who kept trying to get this
done!

I'm still convinced that there is a future for Plan9 derived
systems---and despite what happened to Coraid, in particular in the area
of file servers with WORM, deduplication of blocks and history of binary
files (there is a wild range of small to medium size businesses for
which this will cover a need that no offer, in terms of availability,
TCO or price, covers for now).

Best regards,

So much excitement, that the TLS gnomes can't seem to
keep up. If the above site is unreachable (like it is for me
at the moment), the plain old http version, without the s in
the protocol. http://p9f.org/dl/

Congratulations, and thank you for the effort this took!

Plan 9 under such a simple license is a day I never thought I would see.

Once I have had time to go through the details on my end,
I will update Plan 9 from User Space (plan9port) to match.

Best,
Russ

It occurs to me I thanked everyone but those who did the actual work. To fix that: I no longer use Plan 9 every day, but I have a huge soft spot for it and I've long been aware of license issues including the complexities of changing a license, so I know it wasn't easy. Awesome work, people, well done! :D

The 4e and 4e-latest tarballs are identical.  Is this intentional?

Thanks either way,

A huge Thank You has to go to the Bell Labs alumni who put their
support behind the reassignment of the license:

Wow, fantastic news! Congratulations!

Is there any way we can donate to the foundation (time or money) to keep
things moving along?

I've updated both plan9port and the Plan 9-derived Go libraries at
9fans.net/go to use the MIT license text. The Unix ports of utf, fmt,
regexp, bio, and mk at swtch.com/planport/unix are now MIT too.

For the record, anyone who has modified copies of plan9port or the Go
libraries is welcome to consider all earlier versions to be available
under the new MIT license as well for purposes of changing the license
carried by your forked copies.

At this point I believe I have excised all mention of the Lucent Public
License from all Plan 9-derived code I control, except for one
historical mention in the root plan9port LICENSE file. If you find
anything I missed, please mail me off-list (rsc@swtch.com).

Thanks!

Best,

Not at this time. We've still got a bit more to do with various bits of paperwork, registrations, and the like before we can do that. We'll let everyone know, don't worry. :-)

The transfer announced at the beginning of this thread only applies to
the code that originated at Bell Labs (i.e. 1ed, 2ed, 3ed, 4ed, etc.)

Any enhancements made externally (e.g. tls1.2) or new programs and
systems (e.g. abacus) carry whatever the respective authors have
released them under.

I'm talking about things like the bcm kernel contributed by Richard Miller in the 4e-latest tarball, they weren't written at Bell Labs but were contributed back to Plan 9.

I would have thought any third party code in the /sys/src tree is considered
to be a "Contribution" as defined in the original Lucent license, and is
therefore covered by the new license without the need of a new agreement.

As regards the bcm kernel specifically, note that files in what's called
"4e-latest" are about 7 years out of date, and the currently maintained
source is in contrib/miller/9/bcm. That too is a "Contribution" and covered
by the new license. I hope this can be merged in to the ongoing p9f repository
if/when one is set up.

The relevant part of the Lucent license is:
        LUCENT may publish new versions (including revisions) of this
        Agreement from time to time. Each new version of the Agreement will be
        given a distinguishing version number. The Program (including
        Contributions) may always be distributed subject to the version of the
        Agreement under which it was received. In addition, after a new
        version of the Agreement is published, Contributor may elect to
        distribute the Program (including its Contributions) under the new
        version. No one other than LUCENT has the right to modify this
        Agreement.

As I interpret it, we'd need Nokia to re-release Plan 9 under a Lucent
Public License version 1.03 which would be the MIT license for
contributions to be relicensed (if I'm interpreting it correctly the
GPL release of Plan 9 couldn't apply to contributions either.)

I Am Not A Lawyer, and I don't doubt that the P9 foundation can
get good lawyers.  But, once _ownership_ of the copyright was transferred
to the P9F, they can do what they want with it, including publishing
under the MIT license.  There should not be a need to involve Nokia
any further.

My two cents.

And apologies - I don't mean to start a long discussion about
licensing. I'd rather let P9F worry about it (and throw a few $$ at them
to help).  I suggest we all do the same. :-)

The problem is Nokia doesn't own the contributions, so they can't transfer
them to the P9F, but the LPL says they have the right to update the LPL,
or was this right transferred to the P9F too?

The LPL is dead. It died when all the Plan 9 IP was transferred to the
foundation.

Nokia is out of the picture.

So let's realign this discussion a bit. The Plan 9 source formerly
owned by Nokia is owned by the foundation. That source is released
under the MIT license.

As for the inclusion of source not owned by the foundation, if that
source has a license (e.g. MIT) which allows other projects, including
the foundation's Plan 9 project,  to include it in a distribution or
repo, then that is ok. As per common practice, and up to the
discretion of the author, the files typically include a license header
and copyright notice.

I'm not understanding the issue here. This is all pretty settled
stuff: source code under one copyright and an MIT license which
includes other source code covered by a different copyright and an MIT
license.

The issue is ownership and grants. Not the code the foundation now owns and grants with a MIT license. It’s all the code that everyone is using. See the following email thread:

The issue is that there is some code in Plan 9 not written at Bell Labs which
doesn't explicitly specify any license.

Seems to me that there is always going to be some non-zero risk of lawsuits
when making a change like this, but clearly the foundation was comfortable
with the risk. So what's the point of this discussion? Who are these
disgruntled contributors you are speaking on behalf of?

/sys/src/9/bcm, for example.

If you are concerned about a contribution of yours that is present in one
of the recently released archives, you should take it up privately with the
foundation. If you are planning to use or create a commercial product, a
review with your attorneys is strongly suggested. Otherwise I don't see a
lot of value in the discussion.

Can this question be resolved by a source tree that depicts license by
path? In other words, if things are contributed outside of what the MIT
License would support, is that notated somewhere? This way, people with
these concerns can easily separate known from uncertain licensed objects?

Also, is there a notated list of each object and its owner, and whether the
owner/contributor has attributed a particular license to the object set?

Are you suggesting either getting an explicit permission from the authors or excising such code included in plan9?

I assume any code  in contrib/ has its author’s copyright unless there is an explicit copyright.

The code I'm talking about is in the Plan 9 tree, I've found
/sys/src/9/bcm/ as one example and I think there are probably more.

Everything up to and including the initial 4th edition release should be
fully MIT licensed because the old Plan 9 license gave Lucent unrestricted
rights to modifications.

Nobody is disgruntled (that we know about). The code under discussion
in Richard Miller's contributed bcm kernel.

Richard Miller being in this very thread, you could presumably get him
to say "I declare that the old bcm kernel found in the p9f code is OK
to be redistributed under the MIT license" and be done with it. Or
declare the opposite, and the p9f can remove the kernel from the
source.

As for what to do about a hypothetical patch rewriting a kernel
function that someone mailed to Bell Labs in 2003, well, I don't know.

The web page http://9p.io/sources/contrib/miller/9/bcm says
"Distributed under the MIT License" with a link to the p9f text.
Is that not explicit enough?

That's the whole bcm kernel (a superset of what appears in an earlier
state in the archive tarballs).

The bcm kernel was just an example, I think there are probably others.

the issue with that is AFAIK you didn't agree to have it distributed
under the MIT license, the website was updated by somebody else to say
it's under the MIT license after you put the bcm kernel there.

I declare that the old bcm kernel found in the p9f code is OK
to be redistributed under the MIT license.

Is the new one in your contrib directory OK to be redistributed under
the MIT license too?

https://groups.google.com/g/plan9changes has many examples of patches

Instead of cluttering the mailing list, can you go
through the list of applied patches, track down the
authors, mail them off list about whether they have
objections to having their code relicensed, and
forward their responses in one batch?

It appears many patches were submitted anonymously, so that's not possible.

Happy to rewrite their code if they come forward
and object to the relicensing.

That's what it says on the index webpage, and I know no reason to
believe otherwise.  I'm happy to confirm my permission for the bits
which I wrote.  I can't personally make a blanket declaration for the
whole collection because some files are from other contributors, but
it's my belief that all of it is covered by the MIT license -- as I
told you two days ago when you asked me the same question by e-mail.

Anonymous AWK Fan,

I believe you’re under a misapprehension about how copyrights and source ownership work.  You’re asking for solutions to problem that don’t exist.  Take the BCM code RM contributed to Plan 9, for instance.  Such contributions are considered a “gift” to the larger body of source code (hence the dir name “contrib”).  When ownership of the larger body of code changes, so too does the ownership of the contributed (or gifted) code.  RM did not need to further comment on the licensing agreement.

Please trust the P9 foundation and its attorneys until your own attorney articulates a reason for concern.

I’m not affiliated with the P9 foundation, just a very interested newcomer to the community and really don’t want to see this new found momentum mired down in nonsensical legal discussions.  Please.

Just my $0.02.

Considering Plan 9 has been relicensed under the GPL before without
permission from contributors and nobody said anything about needing
permission from contributors, I now think this relicensing is probably
fine.

Thank God you validated this.
We were all worried and even considering reverting the license change.

I believe if Nokia published a Lucent Public License Version 2 which
was identical to the P9F MIT license that would fully resolve the
issue of re-licensing of contributions because the LPL v1.02 allows
re-licensing to later versions of the LPL.

No it wasn't.

I'm concerned because only one contributor (Nokia) transferred copyright
of their contributions to the P9F which were then re-licensed,
but everyone seems to think this applies to all of Plan 9.

But the LPL allows re-licensing to new versions published by Nokia,
so all contributions could be re-licensed if Nokia updated the LPL.
