  • I stick with "same as Perl itself".

    If in future the terms of Perl go out of sync with the GPL or something, we're all fucked anyway, so I figure that will not happen.

    At the end of the day, you are giving away code. It's a gift.

    Personally, I'm pretty cool with whatever people do with my code. I release it because it makes me write functionality better and more strictly on myself, I get better testing, and a range of other benefits.

    While I might object a little if someone took some of my stuff and did something particularly obnoxioius, Perl gives maximum compatibility, and takes a minimum amount of my brain cycles.

    We have an obvious free option, and by using it there's plenty of people paying attention to the various issues so that you and I don't have to.

    I'd prefer never having to think about it at all.
