Don't want to sound like a GPL zealot, b/c I'm not...

but this (and below) is mostly 'depends' : on how you want the 
software model to work, how do you value feedback, and how do you
care of people taking advantage of your code in various ways,
without you knowing it.

There, that's about as neutral as I dare to name it ;)

(I also tend to trust GPL/LGPL/MPL released programs more than I'd do
 with anything 'less restrictive' - from end user perspective)
