Moving forward with Composr

ocPortal has been relaunched as Composr CMS. ocPortal 9 is superseded by Composr 10.

Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

ocProducts open source licence


ocPortal 4 (and later) is free, released under the CPAL (Common Public Attribution Licence). This is a more open licence than our previous open source licence, and is likely to apply to all we release in the future.

This licence only applies to work released prior to 2008.

This licence to all works bundled in the associated product that are of copyright to ocProducts Ltd ("ocProducts").
Not that the associated product is not ocPortal; if this licence is included in any ocPortal release, then it is associated with one or more integrated components as determined by ocProducts.

You may:
  • Redistribute the works, in original, modified or integrated form.

You must:
  • Licence any redistributed work derived from this work under this exact licence, and attribute copyright of your changes and additions to ocProducts (but not things that are not dependant on this works to function as intended). Redistribution of any form implies copyright transfer, and stopping redistribution does not reverse the transfer.
  • Give prominent credit for how this works was used in any redistributed works or any works that benefited from this works, to ocProducts and a link to ocPortal - where Content Management meets Web 2.0, in the installer (if applicable) and the primary documentation that users read.
  • Make freely and easily available (without any form of charge) full un-obfuscated source code for any redistributed derivative works of this works.
  • Respect the licence and copyright to any bundled works, rather than assuming the whole associated product falls under this licence.
  • Not encumber any derivative works with patents (this does not apply to things that are not dependant on this works to function as intended).
  • Not make a profit off any redistribution without informing and confirming ocProducts knows of it, unless the product is such that ocProducts original or derived work is not required for primary functionality.

Any commercial service actively using a derivative works that is targeted to more than 400 active users must provide credit to ocProducts in a position such that the majority of users will identify with it.

ocProducts provides no warranty of any kind, and accepts no liability of any kind, for this or derivative products.
