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.

No injustice, bullying, fascism, or tyranny. You put code under the a bsd like license to allow basically unrestricted reuse. You do this knowingly and are not forced to do so. Money isn't the only or most important reward.


So you get abused knowingly? That's as bad, if not worse, as getting abused unknowingly.
