Reading the license, I am not impressed. I am glad it was reverted to the GPL. (Not that this excuses hatemail though)
The license is extremely poorly worded and sloppy. It does not even explicitly allow redistribution.
The license claims to be an 'Open Source License' without being OSI-certified.
I 1) cause extra liability to the users.
I 2) useless
II 1) useless
II 2) 'original work' is not defined
II 3) useless
II 4) 'standard package' is not defined; What happen if SQL-ledger site is down ?
II 5) not a condition
II 6) forbidding logo change is non-free. 'another program' is meaningless. The intend is probably non-free in nature.
A good point though: the disclaimer of warranty is lower-case.
