Comment It should be released and under a free licence! (Score 3, Interesting) 505

I've always been a big fan of releasing my academic work under a BSD licence. My work is funded by the taxpayers, so I think the taxpayers should be able to do what they like with my software. So I fully agree that all software should be released. It is not always enough to just publish a paper, but you should release your code so others can fully review the accuracy of your work.
