Google When Google first unveiled its WebM project, there were quite some concerns over its license. This license was incompatible with version 2 and 3 of the GPL, and was effectively a new license, causing unnecessary confusion. Google has now cleared everything up by switching to a regular BSD license.

We would not have WebKit without LGPL -- Apple would not have given any of KHTML code back the community unless they were forced to!

I don't think that Linux would be so widespread with out GPL. How may of the commercial companies would have decided it was not in there best interests to share improvements they made to the kernel?
