@Lofenyy@downey The GPL is just long - very LONG and just something I wont read, even most contracts I signed were much shorter than that. It has heavy licensing issues when it comes to code integration with other licenses, see e.g. Linux.
@nifker@downey In that case, I think you might not understand how the restrictions of the GPL carry with it some benefits that cannot be had with purely unrestricted licenses.
The main thing is the copyleft nature. A long time ago, we very quickly discovered that once info was either a public domain dedication or was licenced with an unrestricted license, it could benefit everyone.
