GNU, GPL, Open Source "The Free Software Foundation is up in arms over Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service, suggesting that these terms fundamentally conflict with the terms of the GNU Public License. The foundation has warned Apple that a version of GNU Go distributed by the App Store makes Apple liable to comply with GPL terms that allow free sharing of code, but warned that its 'Usage Rules' violate those terms. The fallout could potentially affect any app that uses GPLed code."

I do not find the GPL offensive at all - I didn't say anything like that. All I'm saying is that I prefer BSD-style licenses because they cause the minimum amount of fuss. I also happen to believe in choice, and part of that belief is tat closed source companies can use your code too.

However, that is entirely a personal choice.
