Open source licenses: What, which, and why

CC0 not being an open source license was interesting reminder and I wonder if I should license some of my less useful repos as BSD0 (that I don’t remember seeing before) in case someone would find them useful.

I honestly have mixed feelings on how to license: I don’t want what happened to Startpage, happening to my decentralized mind-uploader thing.

Plus I have issues with the GNU license. Namely, to me it goes way to much in a free market direction: I feel like anyone can clone and relicense it, even if that’s Microsoft or Google doing it. Not that they’d have an interest in a Chatbot replacing personal websites.
