Copyleft, GNU, permissive, and, oh, my!

Just a quick little post for you today.

Ever get confused about what the "GNU" license really means? Or how about the newer MS-PL (Microsoft Permissive License?) It seems that every day someone is creating a new license and it can quickly become a confusing mess.

Fortunately, there is a site that provides some relief and covers more licenses than you can shake a stick at: Free Software Foundation: Licenses.
