What would everybody think of switching to the AGPLv3 instead? The
advantage that this provides, for those who don’t know, is a single
additional restriction: when the software is used over the network, source
code must still be provided. In other words, the requirements all remain
the same (providing a copy of the source code, ensuring all modifications
are also GPLed, etc.). The only difference is that the requirements take
effect over the Internet rather than only when the software is distributed
in object code form.
Honestly, I'm no big fan of strongly copyleft licenses, especially AGPL. In
addition to scaring off corporate users (yes, even soulless for-profit
drones deserve the right to use FLOSS), it creates a lot of uncertainty
even for open source users. I would personally prefer something much
permissive like MIT style.
