Thanks for your reply.

I’ve seen your opinions on this point a few times and understand your
position, although I don’t agree with it. Briefly, and without wanting
to start a flamewar: whatever convenience or legal protection licenses
provide, they are philosophically very different from a dedication to
the public domain. The public domain is too great an idea to give up
out of fear of country %s’s interpretation of it. BSD/MIT/ISC may be
“100% legally waterproof”, but they are totally inferior in spirit to
the old hacker license: “share and enjoy”.
