L2 Protocol Licenses

There should be an open list of how blockchain protocols are licensed to better gauge how their underlying code might be used and experimented with. For example, the Arbitrum tech stack has a business source license, while Optimism has an MIT license. See, e.g., recent commentary: https://x.com/yashcrypto21/status/1740034969458876792?s=20

license and ideally specifically for OP Stack vs Arbi Orbit, nuance around what is expected in terms of economic share. OP i believe is an expectation of some type of ongoing revenue share (0 upfront) while Orbit is upfront BSL license fee but no ongoing rev share — basically a NPV calc. not as clear cut tbh as you lay it out above

all that said, would love to contribute on this!
