Open Source License Popularity Updated

Submitted by John T. Haller on Sun, 05/11/2014 - 22:32

I've updated my Open Source License Popularity page with the latest data from Black Duck Software. The GPL/LGPL still rules the roost but with less of an advantage than before. This could be due to overall growth in the MIT/BSD space or proliferation of forks of such projects on sites like github (where a project like the MIT-licensed bootstrap has over 24,000 forks due to the ease of forking even if nothing is changed). I need to look into whether Black Duck de-dupes these or considers them all separate projects.
