New Series: Software Licenses and You

Hey everybody. As you may or may not know, intellectual property is one of my favorite topics, and it’s something that especially affects Open Source projects.

I’m going to kick this series off next week, but I’d love to hear what you want to know about software licenses. I plan on talking about all of this stuff:

  1. The GPL, v2 and v3
  2. BSD/MIT
  3. LGPL
  4. The Apache License
  5. Ms-PL
  6. Why should I care about software licensing?
  7. What goes into picking an open source license?

Probably not in that order. In fact, certainly not. But you get the idea.

So, what am I missing? Any burning thoughts you’d like to see a few words about? Am I missing your favorite license?

Expect to see the first post on this next week!
