    Post Move over GPL - meet the HPL!

    The Harm-Less Permissive License (HPL) is a permissive, non copyleft, software license. It is based on the FreeBSD license but with one additional restriction; the "harm-less" clause. It prevents software, licensed under the HPL, to be used for harming humans or animals.

    This document discusses the advantages and limitations of HPL and explains the details of the license...

    For software to be Free and Open Source, you must be allowed to run it for any purpose you see fit, including killing kittens.

    So, no testing out software on bunnies first, before humans can use it?
    Why, that could be dangerous !

    I knew a psychotic peta member. She flipped out on me, saying I was abusing my chihuahua puppy because for some unexplainable reason when my chihuahua was a puppy she liked to shove her head in my mouth when I held her and sleep.
