What does this mean:

Its most notable feature is that it gives the original developer of Mozilla (Netscape, now a subsidiary of Time Warner), the right to distribute modifications made by other contributors under whatever terms it desires, including proprietary terms, without granting similar rights to those other contributors in respect of the contribution of the original developer.

Okay so I can get through the first part. It gives Netscape the right to distribute others' changes to the source however it wishes. Is the second part supposed to mean that third parties are not allowed to redistribute the Netscape code? Theshibboleth 22:31, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
