Google Code

Google and Open Source development

From the FAQ

What licenses are the projects provided under?
The first set are being released under the BSD 2.0 new license, to encourage their use in all kinds of software projects.

How are licenses chosen at Google?
We generally default to the preference of the open source release engineer who dedicates their time to releasing the code. Most of those currently involved are comfortable with the BSD license for these infrastructural developer tools. Future projects are as likely to be released under the Apache, MIT or GPL licenses.
