What is the best 'do what ever you want to with my code, just remember me' license?  Grin

that might be a harder answer than it first appears..

Apache Licenses are my fav for open licenses.

others may feel differently.

If I create a license like "MY CODE IS PROVIDED AS IS, GET IT AND RUB ALL OVER YOU! JUST SAY MY NAME SOMEWHERE." (just an example), I could use it? Who makes this licenses a legal thing? Is there a entity that controls this kind of stuff?

I've used GNU All-Permissive, such as in the JAudioLibs AudioServer API.

The GNU GPL v2 is what I prefer to use for my software.

OMG Nate replied! *.* You are a hero!

Does new BSD force the 'users' to stay opensource?

I'm with Nate, I use BSD for all my code, except I prefer the 3-clause version.
