The evil side of the GPL

Mr. Good LookinDaniel Jalkut: "Now for the most controversial point of this article, where I suggest that the GPL does more to harm collaborative development than it does to help it." - Developers beware. If you incorporate GPL'd code into your code base you could be in trouble. This is the evil side of the GPL. Proponents of the GPL like to talk about freedom, but it's not free, there's big cost, namely the distribution of your source code.

There are many different license types floating around out there. Pick the right one for your project so you don't end up in court.
