In June 2014, the Montage Image Mosaic software (http://montage.ipac.caltech.edu) was relicensed from a proprietary clickwrap license, which forbade redistribution of the software, to a BSD 3-clause license.

The reasoning behind the choice of license and the benefits and consequences of this choice will be described.
