Ahem, yes, indeed. There's a definitely non-Flash post with more information 


I'm looking after the BBC's involvement with P2P-Next (*not* the homepage) and 
we are planning on

1) Free Software licence for all code produced, with source available.
2) Free Software clients and liasion with distributors to attempt to get these 
into ports/ repos
3) Feeding into the various communities, so that, for example, work done on 
this can benefit other Free projects

and much more.

Yes. LGPL for definite, maybe bi- or tri-licenced with other OSI/FSF approved 

I will raise the question about whether Tribler itself is entirely Free. Any 
code that isn't won't be making its way into P2P-Next.

Happy to continue this debate in person (London, Manchester, Glasgow all 
possible soon, other venues as suitable)

or by email - address@hidden
