+ - Open Source license proliferation threat to users?

Submitted by

E5Rebel writes "Business is embracing open source like never before, but the effective demise of SCO's claims against Linux don't mean an end to licensing problems warns an analyst. The debate on Slashdot seems to focus on GPL and its virtues but there are 1,000 plus open source licenses and businesses face having to manage multiple licenses within a single open source product we are being told. Time to 'impose' some order before we face another backlash? http://www.computerworlduk.com/management/it-busin ess/services-sourcing/news/index.cfm?newsid=4829"
