OS Licences 101

Unfortunately I couldn't get all the details down (and we skipped a few slides) -- will ask for a copy of the slides I think. Overall one of best presentations so far; David, understandably, made a point of stating he's not a lawyer, but presented the topic in a concise, laymans view of the OS licencing world. As he mentioned, there are a lot of opinions, strongly held, about specific styles of licence (the GPL / non-GPL-type divide being the biggest) -- however, many especially small, projects seem to chose a licence arbitrarily without understanding the consequences, better FAQs about this topic need to be publicised.
