<nettime> WTFPL v2


Via GC, <http://sam.zoy.org/wtfpl/>:

#     There is a long ongoing battle between GPL zealots and BSD fanatics,
#     about which license type is the most free of the two. In fact, both
#     license types have unacceptable obnoxious clauses (such as reproducing
#     a huge disclaimer that is written in all caps) that severely restrain
#     our freedoms. The WTFPL can solve this problem.
#
#     When analysing whether a license is free or not, you usually check
#     that it allows free usage, modification and redistribution. Then you
#     check that the additional restrictions do not impair fundamental
#     freedoms. The WTFPL renders this task trivial: it allows everything
#     and has no additional restrictions. How could life be easier? You just
#     DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO.
#
#     The license text

#
#                 DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO PUBLIC LICENSE 
#                         Version 2, December 2004
