Below are two documents. On the left is the Mozilla Public License, a legal document. On the right is an attempt to explain what the license means in informal language. (The links in the license itself point to the appropriate section in the explanation list.)

Note that these explanations are not the license. The explanations are not a legal document, or legal advice. If you need to know exactly what the license requires, you need to read and understand the license itself; if you need legal advice, you need to talk to a lawyer. The annotations are merely a good faith effort to explain the license in simpler language.
