@downey Throw in a GPL license and it's free labor for everyone. Everyone benefits by using the GPL.
@nifker @downey This is where copyleft comes in. Copyleft is one small restriction which states that code cannot be relicensed. It must retain the same license it was distributed with. This restriction prevents the previous issue from occouring and modifications to software by any entity can be added or rejected by the community, making it by far the gold standard of software licensing. This benefits everyone in the long run.
