As some of you have heard I have started my own blog. I plan on using this blog to detail many questions that come up as I feel inspired. Today I felt the need to clarify our decision to use Public Domain. Eventually this blog will be hosted at bitshares.org, for now you can see what I have to say here:http://bytemaster.github.io/update/2014/12/17/Why-Public-Domain.html
Use spell check!

Because BitShares was developed as part of a larger vision to make governments irrelevant, it would be a contradiction to depend upon governments to enforce any kind of software license. BitShares must succeed without any kind of license protection at all.
IMO this "public domain" stamp is questionable for the sources and a violation of third party licences included in the bitshares repository at least for binaries.See https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=8571.0 and https://github.com/PTS-DPOS/PTS/blob/master/LICENSE.md and https://github.com/PTS-DPOS/PTS/blob/master/LICENSE_GUI.md .
