Looks like a "tentative" api is available for tl;dr legal. For example...here is the JSON response for the Apache License:

https://tldrlegal.com/api/license/52931b...

I'll start looking into getting this started

I would make a fork of this repository: https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclicki... and add the new script. It would than live on the DuckDuckGo servers

Basically I would write a simple perl script that listens for a specific input and than makes a request with some params, I will than parse the return value and print it in a "pretty" format. I can start working on that whenever we have the API ready.

Good idea...that sounds good to me. What do you need from me to get started?

My thoughts exactly :) Now I just need to find a public API somewhere and I can begin hacking this together

I really like this idea. It would be hard to implement without a nice API, unless we want to write our own summaries for the most popular 50 licenses or what not. I'm curious to see if we can even take this a step further and allow users to input "attributes" of a license (eg "open source", "free to distribute", "attribution") and spit out a matching license. That + a license lookup like you mentioned would be a tool I use frequently. Thoughts?

This seems easy enough. I'll give it a shot.
