Actually its dual licensed. Meaning if I download it I can assume its GPL for my purposes, and make changes and redistribute it as GPL only. Any changes summited to mozilla.org have to be licensed under the MPL also (meaning you can\'t upload to mozilla.org any pure GPL code created by someone else, this is important as it doesn\'t allow mozilla.org to steal for other mozilla based products, unless they want to give up the notion of MPL). Then as it has the MPL netscape can pick it up and wrap it into a closed source browser. Personally as netscape put so much money into it, I think this is perfectly fair.
