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.

hahaha, d/w, I understand sarcasm.

I'm intrigued, given I don't know you, and couldn't see your expression or hear inflection when making that comment, how I was supposed to detect the sarcarm?

Altering your register doesn't really help either, given the number of people online who speak English as a foreign language
