Brett Smith of the Free Software Foundation has announced
a license recommendation guide. "Today I'm happy to share something we've been working on for a little while: "How to choose a license for your own work" is a comprehensive set of license recommendations for new projects. This page explains what factors are important to consider when making licensing decisions, and suggests specific licenses for different scenarios. If you're starting a new project (whether it's software, documentation, or something else related) and unsure what license to use, you just need this one link to find our recommendations.
" (Bradley Kuhn has some comments
on the recommendation site on his blog as well.)
