The GPL is more relaxed than a Mozilla type license? What exactly do you mean 
by "relaxed?" Or is your Mozilla type license not really Mozilla like? I 
usually classify licenses as strong copyleft (strict), weak copyleft 
(somewhat relaxed), and unrestricted (very relaxed). The GPL fits in the 
first category and the MPL in the second.
