License type

description

Hi all:
 
YUI Compressor can not be used in a Open Source project using GPL license, Ms-PL is not compatible with the GNU GPL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_source)
 
"If you distribute any portion of the software in compiled or object code form, you may only do so under a license that complies with this license."
 
There is some problem in changing to a less restrictive license?
 
Thanks.

I can't see why not. what type of license should I use? I just chose that because .. well .. i donno .. it had a nice name? Basically, i don't care what people do with the code, unless it's not illegal AND i'm not infringing any licenses that i might have inherited from YUI themselves.

K - i've changed the license to GPLv2 ... which I think means : everyone can use this and do the hell they want with it :) Go nuts, peeps :)
