[$] Motivations and pitfalls for new "open-source" licenses

Tuesday March 12, 2019. 09:57 PM , from
One of the bigger developments of the last year has been
the introduction of licenses that purport to address perceived
shortcomings in existing free and open-source software licenses. Much has
been said
and written about
them, some of it here, and they are clearly
much on the community's mind. At FOSDEM
2019, Michael Cheng
gave his view on the motivations for the introduction of these licenses,
whether they've been effective in addressing those motivations, what
unintended consequences they may also have had, and the need for the
community to develop some ground rules about them going forward.
