Good quote:
    It is enough to say that licensors are free to decide what
    licensing model suits them best and whether or how to give
    away rights. Licensees may accept or reject software under
    the terms of the license, but they don’t get to set their
    own terms. That’s what copyright law allows, and the GPL
    uses that law effectively and brilliantly for its avowed
    purpose of fostering the creation of free software available
    to all under a single license.

Effective! Brilliant! LICENSE!
