Most Eclipse projects use the Eclipse Public License (EPL) as a declared license, but other licenses (e.g. Apache Software License 2.0) can also be used. All Eclipse projects exist under the umbrella of a top-level project, each specifying one or more authorized licensing regimes. Any licensing system other than that specified by a high-level project must be approved by the Eclipse Board of Directors.

The Eclipse Foundation examines license compatibility through the lens that enables successful adoption of Eclipse technology in open source and commercial software products and services. We want to create an ecosystem based on the redistribution of Eclipse software technologies and include commercially licensed software products. Determining whether a license is acceptable for third-party content often requires input and guidance from Eclipse`s legal counsel. For Eclipse projects (and the open source world in general), committers are the ones who hold the keys. Committers decide what code to include in the code base, they decide how to build a project, and ultimately they decide what to provide to the adopters` community. Participant status is awarded after proof of success (usually a record of a high-quality contribution to a project) and successful election of the committer.

Although this license is intended to facilitate commercial use of the Program, a provider that integrates the Program into a commercial product offering must do so in a manner that does not create any potential liability to other contributors.

The content provided by the Eclipse Foundation is constantly evolving, as this is the nature of open source development. These other notices allow licenses and other legal information to be changed if the content changes without the need to constantly revise the Software User Agreement. Think of them as plug-ins for the Software User Agreement. Because much of the software provided by the Eclipse Foundation is designed to be extensible or extend software such as the Eclipse platform, legal notices from multiple sources may be able to coexist consistently.
