I just came across the SimPL License which is described as:
This Simple Public License 2.0 (SimPL-2.0 for short) is a plain language implementation of GPL 2.0. The words are different, but the goal is the same - to guarantee for all users the freedom to share and change software. If anyone wonders about the meaning of the SimPL, they should interpret it as consistent with GPL 2.0.
It's certainly easier to read than the GPL, but is that a good thing? Legally, can I be confident something licensed under the SimPL is protected as well as something licensed under the GPL? Are there any disadvantages to using the SimPL?
