Choosing an OSS license

If you’re bewildered by the large number of OSS license choices, GitHub wants to help you choose the right license for your source code.

This site is not a comprehensive directory of open source licenses. We think there are too many options, which adds to the confusion. On the homepage, we break it down into just three licenses. The vast majority of projects will likely be fine choosing from one of these three. #

They highlight a few other licenses, and the site itself is open source as well.
