New licenses place additional burden on software distributors and  
users. In fact, the Open Source Initiative even has a working group  
dedicated to helping address the issue of license proliferation  

Are you sure that your license:
a) doesn't duplicate an existing license (http://www.opensource.org/ 
b) meets the open source definition? (http://www.opensource.org/docs/ 
c) is needed?
