Quoting Prashant Shah (pshah.mumbai at gmail.com):
> What is the difference between CC0 and unlicense ?
CCO contains a well-drafted fallback to permissive terms in the
event that its primary intent runs afoul of local law (as is a serious
problem with such efforts), while Unlicense is a badly drafted crayon
licence, apparently thrown together by software engineers imagining they
can handwave away the worldwide copyright regime by grabbing a bit of
wording from here, a bit from there, throwing the result out in public,
and hoping for the best.
My initial comments on Unlicense:
I never bothered getting to patent complications.
Cheers, My daughter is invited to a samba party. I was
Rick Moen excited, thought it was a sysadmin party.
