Open Source Licensing


I mentioned on a few different occasions that I'm in a community college LPI Linux essentials class.

I just took my mid term. I got an 85 percent. Every question was answered accurately .. until that is ... I hit the Licensing part of the exam. That section contained all the wrong answers.

I hate this stuff ...

My question is ..
Does anyone know of a resource that can explain Open Source Institute, Free software Foundation, GPL, GLPL, Creative Commons and all the other related licenses in simple terms ?

Thanks !!
