Is there a short weak (or strong) copyleft license?
I like the GPL v3. The way that all its different sections interlock is quite poetic. However, this beauty comes at the cost of it being near impossible to understand. In licensing things I would like to be able to understand at least one of the licenses that I use. I was wondering if there are any short, permissive software licenses ideally consisting of only a weak copyleft clause that I could dual license under.
The fair license gives me hope that this must be possible, but I have not been able to find or make a short copyleft license.
I have looked at the Mozilla Public License, but it too is quite long and complicated.
This was my effort to write a short, weak copyleft license:
This datum may be used if distributed versions of the datum clearly direct users towards the source form of all files utilizing the datum clearly released under this license or this license and second compatible and more restrictive license that does not include terms that have never allowed by either the OSI or FSF or been contained in this license (except all patent provisions which may be changed to that of any license approved by the OSI or FSF and compatible with the GPL v3 regardless of how they compare to those of this license) and is compatible with the GPL v3 and the source form of all files utilizing the datum are available in a reasonable manner for no more than the cost of distribution and a nominal fee and without unreasonable delay; each contributor hereby grants every entity an irrevocable, unconditional, world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive patent license to make, use, sell, offer for sale, have made, import, and otherwise transfer either its contributions or the combination its contributions and those of others.
