_If_ Canonical's Contributor License Agreement for Mir mentions anything
about "the right of making a proprietary version of Mir" then I'm
surprised. Because that would probably be unenforceable.
Mir, and the server code in particular, is GPL. That usually makes it
illegal for anyone* to make a closed-source Mir server.
*"anyone" may exclude Canonical as the original copyright holder.
Canonical might have rights to dual-license or re-license. But those are
murky waters I'm not familiar with.
