RE: [xml-dev] GPL and XML and Schemas

You haven't actually said what you trying to achieve.

I can guarantee you that whatever license you choose (or write), there will
be messages from lawyers telling you that they cannot accept your free gift
because the license conditions are unacceptable. Are you happy to respond
"that's your loss"?

If what you're shipping is any good, there will also be hundreds of people
who use it without reading the license conditions or making any effort to
adhere to them. Do you actually care?

I sometimes think the best license would be one that reads: Whatever
happens, I agree not to sue you and you agree not to sue me.
