Starting with 2.0, GSBase is licensed under an Apache style license. The full contents of this license are below.
Prior to 2.0, GSBase was licensed under the LGPL. This change in license was done to ensure that GSBase could be used by the greatest number of projects possible. There is a fair bit of general confusion about the viral nature of the LGPL so the license for GSBase has been changed to one that is generally better understood.
