LOL, now /that's/ a license I can work with!
Why isn't there a version of that with non-offensive wording????
There's a hundred nearly-identical software licenses out there, but
that's the only one I've seen that actually tries to be public domain.
You can relicense it however you want to.
No, you can take a WTFPL work and include it in a GPL'd work without
changing the license.
You can't, however, sue someone for violating the GPL if they use only
the WTFPL portions of the GPL'd work, because you don't own the
copyright, and therefore you lack both standing in the court and the
ability to restrict others' usage of the work.
No, I mean I want to release code under the same conditions as the WTFPL
license, but with less offensive wording. I can't do this without
creating a new license. Every other license seems to have a silly "this
notice may not be removed" clause. I'm only including a license for the
benefit of the users, not for myself. With all the stuff people say
about how there are legal ambiguities with public domain, I just find it
unbelievable that there's no "formalized public domain" license.
