Actually. That sounds like a good topic for sometime.

I mostly just copy the license from other projects I like and hope for the best. 

I'd be interested to understand a bit more. I have read "copy left" but it was a while ago, and as u remember not really aimed at open source projects. 

Thanks
Alan

My company now makes absolutely sure that all engineers are trained - and periodically re-trained, so they don't forget - about including open source code in our products. Sometimes it's ok. Sometimes it's not.
