Right, so to avoid licence hell I think its neccesary to limit to one
licence. Views aren't entrenched enough yet to make this really
As long as the licence is not too wierd and does what people want you will
get people to use it.
I dont want to have to read a huge, complex licence every time I want to
download a sample. If you allow a variety of licences you will get it ;)
