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. 馃 Opinions?


on copyleft 

@thomas while I sympathize with your frustration, it sounds like the cause of it is the IP limitations, not the copyleft licences. I don't know what is the context for this, but if it is in their control, it might be worth approaching them about making their own end content opensourced/free software/creative commons etc... people are not often aware this is an option, especially outside of tech/creative circles. :)
