The Common Public Attribution License ("CPAL") is a free software license approved by the Open Source Initiative in 2007. Its purpose is to be a general license for software distributed over a network. It is based on the Mozilla Public License, but it adds an attribution term paraphrased below: The CPAL also adds the following section discussing "network use" which triggers copyleft provisions when running CPAL licensed code on a network service and this way closing the so-called ASP loophole:

dbo:abstract
  • Die Common Public Attribution License (CPAL) ist eine Open-Source-Lizenz, die 2007 von Open Source Initiative als solche genehmigt wurde.Diese Lizenz will eine allgemeine Lizenzierung Zwecks Verteilung über das Internet bieten. Sie basiert größtenteils auf der Mozilla Public License, fügt allerdings einige umstrittene Passagen hinzu: “[…] the Original Developer may include […] a requirement that each time an Executable and Source Code or a Larger Work is launched or initially run […] a prominent display of the Original Developer's Attribution Information […] must occur on the graphic user interface employed by the end user to access such Covered Code […]” „[…] Die ursprünglichen Entwickler können […] eine Bedingung hinzufügen, dass jedes Mal, wenn ein kompiliertes Programm und Quellcode oder eine größere Arbeit gestartet oder erstmals ausgeführt wird, […] eine deutliche Anzeige der Namensnennung des ursprünglichen Entwicklers […] auf der grafischen Benutzeroberfläche erscheinen muss, die der Endbenutzer gebraucht, um auf solchen Code zuzugreifen […]“ Das Debian-Projekt erklärte die Lizenz als unverträglich mit seinen Free Software Guidelines (DFSG) wegen dieser Bedingung.

As an express condition for the grants of license hereunder, You must treat any External Deployment by You of the Original Code or Modifications as a distribution under section 3.1 and make Source Code available under Section 3.2. The Debian project found the license to be incompatible with its Free Software Guidelines (DFSG) because of its attribution requirement. (en)
