@codeberg if I were a developer in need of a license for my code, how would I find out which of those licenses is the best one for my project?
That's a tough question, we are going to add an article to the docs or our blog.
Most well-known and widely used licences are safe, for example copylefted ones like GPL, LGPL, also MIT (X11 & Expat), 3-clause BSD, usually the CreativeCommons licences ... but beware, not all are compatible with OSI / FSF and thus allowed on Codeberg, because they may not allow FreeCulture.
We know it's complicated, thus people started using Unlicence, WTFPL etc, but these may introduce legal trouble ...
Unlicence and WTFPL are accepted, of course! But they are known to cause trouble in certain jurisdictions, thus many people advise against using them.
I just wanted to point out that the situation is so complex, that people started using those licences (WTFPL could even be considered an esoteric one), but this did not really improve the situation 😢
