Comment: Use the Zlib license on iPhone or consoles (Score 2, Informative) 304

by erwincoumans (#23100690) Attached to: iPhone SDK and Free Software Don't Match

GPL is not just incompatible with iPhone. (L)GPL is also incompatible with proprietary development environments on game consoles such as PlayStation 3, Wii etc (except for PS3 Linux obviously).

Just use the Zlib license and feel flattered if people consider using your software. Even if they don't give credit. Even if they don't contribute back.
Some will contribute back or give credit voluntary, even through they are not required by the license.

You can publish your source code, just avoid re-distributing proprietary technology.

The less time planning, the more time programming.
