This is a (very) mintor update to the Greater Lunduke License (aka “The GLL”… aka “The Bill & Ted License”).
More importantly, today everything you see here is licensed under the GLL version 0.3. This includes items that are also licensed under the GPL — those items are now dual-licensed.
Why are they dual licensed? Because I feel that the GLL provides some direct (and extremely important) benefits to the consumer that the GPL simply does not.
The Greater Lunduke License
Version 0.3, August 2012
Copyright 2012 (C) Bryan Lunduke <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim or modified copies of this license document, and changing it is allowed as long as the name of the license is changed.
The “Greater Lunduke License” is inspired, in part, by the wisdom of the Two Great Ones, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan. Namely that we should all “be excellent to each other”, that being “bogus” is “most non-triumphant” and that all dudes should “party on”.
This license applies those concepts in such a way that it is applicable to all forms of content, including, but not limited to: software, books, music, movies and various works of art.
