nothing to disagree ?? ( i think its 2 different animals )
one license requires that the derivatives can be distributed with the
same license terms you received ...
bsd-style license allows you a whole other list of rights to do as one
i keep wondering .. why don't people talk to a GPL-competent lawyer
and have them draw up the license ...
although one can write up one's own license and but i;m not sure
about other people use the original author's license on other works
- where is the gray line of "practicing law" without a license,
if you'd pardon the punn, start to come in before it is not
long a license for ones own products vs generally used by othes
for unrelated stuff
