Survey Shows GPLv3 Adoption Not Widespread

This is good news. I’d like to see more open source and “free” projects abandon GPL in favor of unrestricted licenses.

Open Source Developers Staying Away From GPLv3:

Only 6% of developers working on Open Source software have adopted GPLv3, according to Evans Data Corp’s recently released Open Source Software Development Survey. Two-thirds say they will not be adopting GPLv3 anytime in the next year, and 43% say they will never implement the new license. In addition, almost twice as many would be less likely to join a project that implements GPLv3 than would be more likely to join.
