"For most open source software users, there are few things as easy to understand or follow as an open source license. If you share your code and follow a few basic steps, you're in the clear. This simplicity is a bit deceiving because the licenses are really quite complicated if step off the well-beaten path. And if you happen to be accused of something odd like SCO's claim that IBM donated SCO-owned code, well, the normally simple rules turns into a thicket of brambles with three-inch-long thorns. Lawrence Rosen, a hacker turned lawyer, has stepped forward with a deep and important exploration of the law. Curious programmers will enjoy it, but it's indispensable for businesses trying to honor the rules while still closing off some of their code."
