I'm not a lawyer, and even if I was, I wouldn't be your lawyer.

But.... I offer DotNetZip under a license, the MS-PL, that's intended to permit commercial or non-commercial use.  Read the license; it's not very long and it's pretty clear.  Before you make a big commitment you may want to get an IP lawyer to review your plans.

I am not a lawyer too, and it's a bit hard to understand English/American license details for me. So I have a simple question: May I distribute in a free DotNetNuke module that is published under the MIT (DNN) license? Is this license compatible with the MS-PL license?

If yes: Do you want me to mention this project and/or link back to it in the description part of the module?

Best wishes
