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.

However what Lemur2 alluded to that he still thinks that if someone repackages it and makes money even though the original author released the code knowing full well that may happen.

I just reflected the situation back at him saying that forked code can have the same fate.
