It reads to me like an ultra-permissive license, almost a public domain
dedication in the form of a license. Personally, I find it an
It has a copyright notice, but it does not require keeping it. This is
unexpected (for me); I'm not sure why it asserts copyright. It also
states it allows to "relicence".
Is it really intended to allow a full replacement/removal of license
text and removal of copyright notice? It will have that effect...
No-Warranty. The statement is much simpler than for MIT, BSD, ISC,
Unlicense, CC0, CC-BY. Personally, I'd suggest not "crayon"-ing that
paragraph. I'd think you don't want it to fail.
Just my two cents. And two more... If I met it in the wild, I would
treat this license like a MIT license for software, and similar for
content. The text reads okay to me, and it seems more permissive than
MIT/ISC. But I'm not sure it was indeed intended ultra-permissive (the
licensor might have assumed the (c) notice has to stay!). Regardless,
I'd treat it anyway like MIT...
