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.

"Personally, as an open source developer, I try to choose the license with the least restrictions possible.

So you release all your code into the public domain?

If people in Africa could *eat* code, it would be our obligation to make all software public domain.
