Thank you!

My licensing reasons are rather pragmatic, the reasons why I
don't use the GPL* are:

1) I don't understand it completely and in any detail. So I
stick to MIT that I know and understand any impact of it.

2) To be honest, I think that license violations in commercial
products who might use GPLed code are hard to proof if they are
done properly, so I believe that the GPL doesn't protect you
that much in the real world from license violation. It's a
different story in theory of course.
