I note with interest than Mr Perens conveniently ignores the three and four clause BSD licences which predate both the OSI and GPL. You really can't get much simpler if you want a lawyer-free experience, although they admittedly don't conform to the idealists' view that a licence should enforce openness of the resulting derivatives.

Icon, because Beastie, whose position was usurped by a politically correct sex toy/space hopper a few years ago, roughly around the same time pet projects and idealism screwed up the ports system.
