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.

I think ZFS is a bad example, as it is an exception. Not the rule. Lots of people think CDDL was specifically choosen to prevent it from being part of the Linux kernel.
