Hah! I didn’t even make that one up: Do What the Fuck You Want to Public License. It should have been “whatever” not “what”, which kind of sucks, makes it look like an illiterate 15-year-old american came up with it.

I found it because uMap (an awesome piece of software I’m sure I‘ll write about one day) is licenced under it.

It’s interesting, for most of my life I used the GPL for my software, and if ever I considered a BSD/MIT-style licence I was confused about the need for a licence/disclaimer at all, given that you’re free to do whatever you want.

If I had to decide today – I don’t know what I’d do. I still think it’s kind of retarded to claim that just because you got some software for free on the internet the author of the software owes you a warranty, but I’d need to look deeper into why the warranty disclaimers are so prevalent.
