Recently noticed that both Magento 1 and Magento 2 have two different licenses files:

  • LICENSE.txt which is the OSL License
  • LICENSE_AFL.txt which is the AFL License

However, the LICENSE.html only shows the OSL license.

What is the point of having two different licenses ?


IIRC, the less restrictive AFL is used for templates to make paid themes (and extensions) possible with adjusted base templates.
