The "Dont Be a Dick" Public License

As developers we all want to protect our code from dicks that try to steal, sell, infringe or just generally rip us off. For this we have licenses like GPL, MIT, etc.

Sometimes however, you release a project where you just don't care what happens to the code. For this Sam Hocevar created the WTFPL which is a brilliant license.

For those of you who want something in between, try the DBAD license:


DON'T BE A DICK PUBLIC LICENSE

Version 1, December 2009

Copyright (C) 2009 Philip Sturgeon email@philsturgeon.co.uk

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim or modified copies of this license document, and changing it is allowed as long as the name is changed.

DON'T BE A DICK PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

  1. Do whatever you like with the original work, just don't be a dick.

    Being a dick includes - but is not limited to - the following instances:

    1a. Outright copyright infringement - Don't just copy this and change the name.
    1b. Selling the unmodified original with no work done what-so-ever, that's REALLY being a dick.
    1c. Modifying the original work to contain hidden harmful content. That would make you a PROPER dick.

  2. If you become rich through modifications, related works/services, or supporting the original work, share the love. Only a dick would make loads off this work and not buy the original works creator(s) a pint.

  3. Code is provided with no warranty. Using somebody else's code and bitching when it goes wrong makes you a DONKEY dick. Fix the problem yourself. A non-dick would submit the fix back.
