Q: Can Will the existing MPL 2.0 licensed code be migrated to another license, like Apache 2.0?

A: See Bing results:

The Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL 2.0) and the Apache License 2.0 are both open-source software licenses that allow users to use, modify, and distribute software. However, there are some differences between the two licenses.

The MPL 2.0 is a weak copyleft license that requires any changes made to the original code to be released under the same license. This means that any software that uses MPL 2.0-licensed code must also be released under the MPL 2.0 license. The Apache 2.0 license, on the other hand, is a permissive license that allows users to modify and distribute the code under any license they choose, including proprietary licenses.

Another difference between the two licenses is that the MPL 2.0 is compatible with the GNU General Public License (GPL), while the Apache 2.0 license is not. This means that code licensed under the MPL 2.0 can be combined with code licensed under the GPL, but code licensed under the Apache 2.0 license cannot.

Finally, the MPL 2.0 There are no plans at this time to change the source code license.  The MPL 2.0 includes a patent provision that grants users a license to any patents that are necessary to use the software. The Apache 2.0 license does not include such a provision.
