Third Party Content Licenses

Updated April 7, 2022

Approved Licenses

This approved license list enumerates the licenses that the Eclipse Foundation has approved for third-party content used by its projects. Inclusion in this list does not imply that the Eclipse Foundation has determined that every one of these licenses can be used by your Eclipse Foundation project. That is, the licenses on this list are not necessarily compatible with every Eclipse Foundation project license, or with each other.

In the general case, determining whether or not a particular combination of licenses are consistent is hard. Eclipse project committers: let the Eclipse Intellectual Property Team help you with this by engaging in the Eclipse Intellectual Property Due Diligence Process.

If you otherwise have any questions about this list or its use, please contact

Non Approved Licenses

Other licenses have been approved by the Eclipse Board of Directors in certain cases.

Please contact for more information.
