No Need For The GPL?

Interesting interview with Eric Raymond where he claims that the reciprocity provisions of the GPL are now unnecessary and are slowing down open source adoption. I don’t think I agree, but it’s an interesting argument, and the first time I’ve seen esr attack the GPL so directly.

Update: this article was apparently slashdotted. I try not to link things that have been slashdotted under the theory that they’ve already gotten enough attention, but in this case I read the article before I saw the slashdot link.
