Which F/OSS license to choose?

There are some hundred open source licenses to choose from and tons of documentation to dig through. Noone is able to grok that so help and guidance is welcome.

An LdBrouwer has written a quite short comparison. It doesn’t give you the full monty but points you in the right direction and above all – gives the noob and non-tech some basic knowledge and directions to steer by.

He also links to another site with some Yes/No questions to find out which license fits you. It doesn’t hold very many licenses and is a tad old but nevertheless worth a try.

Somewhere there is (was) a site. I saw it some years ago. It is also a simple expert system for choosing the right F/OSS license. But I can’t find it.

Update: Another article is here.
