GPL, What does it offer?


How is registering through GPL better than putting source in public domain?

What is the BSD licence?

Whats lesser GPL?

for the actual details, go to gnu.org and read something, it's all there somewhere. but if you don't attach a license to your software then you would have nothing to protect you if someone blankly copies your code and ignores you. having a lisence protects you and your software.
