"Dual-licensed software" is an administration method whereby companies that own the copyright to all of their software provide it with open source licenses and also license the very same code with a proprietary license for organizations whose procurement systems still require one.

The principle with dual-licensed software is the same: it is all FOSS if all of the software is made available under a license approved by the OSI.
