: I found an essay on the ethical motivation behind BSD-type licensing. Good timing, as many of the collab.net people like that kind of license. I don't care one way or the other. If someone's going to pay me to write non-copylefted free software, I'll do it. In actual fact, someone is going to pay me. Therefore, I'll do it.

My collab.net interview was my only interview which consisted in part of debating the merits of BSD-type vs. GPL licenses.

That essay also has a lucid explanation of what the GPL actually requires: "that software authors should be required to make their source code available to the same extent that they make the object code available."
