Open Source License Debate

The Free and Open Source Software Learning Center hosted a debate between representatives for three different open source license alternatives.
I was asked to participate as one of the debaters, presenting my view of the advantages of the BSD license.

The 'debate' was very friendly in nature, and was very much intended to be informative and entertaining.

FOSSLC managed to get a great mix of debaters and judges - I think the judging reveals that people's license preference depends a lot on what you're doing with open source software.
Here's a link to the video of the debate (two hours!), and the judges' commentary.
