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"
