+1 for GPL+MIT dual license.

Simple, clear and works.

Less need for lawyers - ask 2 and you get 3 opinions anyway :)

The only thing is that looking at the OP's way of asking the question, I
think he should read those licenses a couple of times (as well as some
summaries) in order to understand them well.

Mailing list discussions, lawyer advice etc can't fix things for you if
you don't know what the license means... you'll have to find out
yourself, perhaps not to a very detailed level, but certainly the
general idea of the license.
