I stumbled across a piece of code under the "Don't Be a Dick Public
License", which has a convenient web site: http://www.dbad-license.org/
Yeah, it's another "semi-joke" license. Supposed to be funny, but
confusing and contradictory.
The license text is as follows:
# DON'T BE A DICK PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 1.1, December 2016
Copyright (C) [year] [fullname]
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim or modified
copies of this license document.
DON'T BE A DICK PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
1. Do whatever you like with the original work, just don't be a dick.
Being a dick includes - but is not limited to - the following
1a. Outright copyright infringement - Don't just copy this and change
1b. Selling the unmodified original with no work done what-so-ever,
that's REALLY being a dick.
1c. Modifying the original work to contain hidden harmful content. That
would make you a PROPER dick.
2. If you become rich through modifications, related works/services, or
supporting the original work, share the love. Only a dick would make
loads off this work and not buy the original work's creator(s) a
3. Code is provided with no warranty. Using somebody else's code and
bitching when it goes wrong makes you a DONKEY dick. Fix the problem
yourself. A non-dick would submit the fix back.
I can't tell if this is non-free or not. Certainly the restrictions on
sales of unmodified work and the restriction on certain types of
modifications would be problematic, but then I can't tell if the "just
don't be a dick" part is a request or a requirement (which then
contradicts the "do whatever you like" portion).
So, is this another one for the "Bad Licenses" section?
