Submission + - SFLC issues analysis of BSD + GPL licensing

DrJimbo writes: From the news-for-nerds-stuff-that-matters dept.

As reported by Groklaw, the SFLC has released their analysis of the recent BSD + GPL licensing kurfuffle. They have also issued guidelines for using BSD licensed code in GPL projects. Contrary to the views of many Slashdotters, they think it is important to keep the more permissive licenses intact when BSD code is used in GPL projects. They also suggest we avoid dual licensing and BSD + GPL code when possible. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to use BSD code in a GPL project.
