Just wanted to let you know that I dislike copyleft licenses. They effectively make my (personal) life as a developer harder due to IP restrictions on the client's side and I don't consider them "free software".

It does not really add constraints to your project if the license tells you to name the author. But it does, if it tells you you're not allowed to combine it / link against it in software that you are not allowed to publish for any reason.

That's not really "free" to me. 🤔 Opinions?


@thomas This subject has been beaten to death across decades. What emotional hole are you trying to fill by attempting to re-ignite the Internet's most tired debate?
