> "nobody will use your code if it's GPL, make it permissive" is the open source version of "we won't pay you, but you'll get exposure"

-- quote from Michael F. Lamb

@LWFlouisa Everyone can modify your code if it's under copyleft. And there's more to get than "just exposure"... I'm not writing all the copylefted code I am for "just exposure", but to build a better future.

Choosing lax/permissive licenses is fine. The problem is people trying to pressure you to not do so for *their* business interests.
