DotNetNuke squares off against the GPL

[ Thanks to Amy

“So it was with sad dismay that I read a DotNetNuke blog entry
this morning that took unabashed aim at the GNU Public License
(GPL) used by DotNetNuke’s (DNN) primary (and more successful)
competing content management systems, WordPress, Joomla!, and
Drupal.

“In the Dec. 13 blog entry, Scott Willhite, Director of
Community Relations for DotNetNuke Corporation, unsubtly takes
potshots at the GPL with just about every piece of ammunition he
can think of.

“The basic premise of Willhite’s article is that DNN’s BSD-style
license immediately provides more legal indemnification than the
GPL, and therefore protects DNN customers more than the other open
source CMSes with which DNN competes. “
