CodePlex: choosing a license

One of the toughest parts on  creating a new [Archive.isCodePlex project is choosing a license.

As Jeff Attwood wrote a couple of years ago, choosing a license – any license – is important, because if you don’t, you declare an implicit copyright without explaining how others could use your code.
In addition to that, Jeff published a list of licenses with a one-line phrase describing them, so it becomes easier to start making a choice.

Last year, ShreevastaR extended that list in his answer to this StackOverflow.com question on CodePlex licensing.
Brian Campbell did the same a few months later on  another StackOverflow question about CodePlex licensing.
There are many more StackOverflow.com threads like those 2, and they give similar results.

The reason I want to put up a CodePlex project, is to put my sample code for conferences, blog articles and course examples on-line so they are easier to share with other people.
Most is from Visual Studio or Delphi projects using languages C#, VB.NET and Delphi.
Some of it are batch-files, XSD, XSLT, or other small snippets to get stuff working. Read the rest of this entry »
