Good idea. I have a good general understanding of these things, but I've
learned that I am NOT qualified to educate others on these things.

Is there anyone out there that would be willing to talk about this kind of
stuff?  It's important.

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

Agreed: copyright and license - regardless of what you feel about
intellectual property law - is important. It is the law, even if you don't
like it.

The 2 open source projects I'm involved with have explicit BSD licenses and
require committers to sign an apache-like contribution agreement (i.e.,
agree to releasing their code under the BSD license).

Here in corporate programming culture, we get drilled on open source,
licensing, etc. my company acquired a company a few years ago that made a
GPL blunder (hint: it rhymes with shminksys). 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.

I saw this on /. and figured I would post this here for all of you too busy
to read /. headlines.
