Even if it were BSD license how would that affect you? In fact the BSD
license gives end users even more freedom/"protection" then the GPL, the GPL
is designed to protect programmers (i.e. people don't steal their code),
whereas the BSD protects end users more (here, use the code, or take the
code and modify/sell it, whatever, just leave the notice on it). Both have
their place.

If you're gonna bash licenses at least get a clue first.
