BSD licensing, in a number of ways

Well, technically, the title is “Twenty questions about the GPL“, but I read it more as reasons for using the BSD license.  (via)

Also, I was going to link to this article about increased BSD(ish) license adoption, and then I wasn’t, and then I found that Dru Lavigne had managed to pull out the quote that summarized the idea perfectly.

While I’m on this theme, this Coding Horror “Digital Sharecropping” article complains that people are effectively doing free labor for companies that plan to profit from that labor.  There’s a parallel between free software and the activity he’s worried about.  Not that he’s wrong, mind you, but there’s more to the story.
