Licensing considerations for software archived at ibiblio

First you really should look at the Open Source Initiative website - they are the best authority on what the licensing issues are. In particular, look at the page on licensing options: http://opensource.org/licenses/index.html

There are four main licenses that are used for Open Source software - to take the quick route, you might want to just select one of these:

The super-quick route is to just specify 'GNU General Public License (GPL)'. This is the oldest and most common.

You MUST specify a license when you submit your software. Just stating 'freeware' or 'shareware' isn't enough. Thanks!
