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.

If you give something away do you have the right to stipulate what a person does with it?

They are not giving something away, they licence it for people to use and the licence stipulates the conditions for that use. If you want to give something away then use public domain.
