Submission + - Stealing Versus Sharing (

An anonymous reader writes: KernelTrap has some fascinating coverage of a recent rift between the OpenBSD developers and the Linux kernel developers. Proponents of the GPL defend their license for enforcing that their code can always be shared. However in the current debate the GPL is being added to BSD-licensed code, thereby preventing it from being shared back with the original authors of the code. Thus, a share-and-share-alike license is effectively preventing two way sharing.
