GNU, GPL, Open Source "A new analysis of licensing data shows that not only is use of the GPL and other copyleft licenses continuing to decline, but the rate of disuse is actually accelerating." This shouldn't be surprising. The GPL is complex, and I honestly don't blame both individuals and companies opting for simpler, more straightforward licenses like BSD or MIT-like licenses.

Sure. So it's more complex. But you seriously believe complexity comes into consideration? The GPL isn't difficult to understand., but v3 sucks if you're an evil corporation.
