GPL 3 to Take on IP, Patents November 23, 2004

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Oh boy, just what we need. A future version of the most political software license in history. Yippeee. Im so enthused I just wanna go choke a cat. “Take on IP and Patents” basically you have to provide a written promise that you give up your Patent and IP rights, the problem still exists that, What if a ciontributor doesnt have the IP or Patent rights. This is why the BSD License is the best Open Source license available. It is very cut and dry, there is no give point. The GPL is just becoming more complex and more like an iron fist of a license, i dont know why anyone would want to use it. We will see how great adoption is once the GPL 3 is released.
