Just wanted to let you know that I dislike copyleft licenses. They effectively make my (personal) life as a developer harder due to IP restrictions on the client's side and I don't consider them "free software".

It does not really add constraints to your project if the license tells you to name the author. But it does, if it tells you you're not allowed to combine it / link against it in software that you are not allowed to publish for any reason.

That's not really "free" to me. 🤔 Opinions?


@thomas "free to me" is to the point here. For the SW you want to use, it is free cause it is going to stay free and efforts flow back to the project.

If it is too hard to integrate or not even possible because of the license of your project, just don't pull in too many dependencies.
