    I wrote a story for HowtoForge.

    The default license was "All Rights Reserved (Site default)".
    Wouldn't it be better if the default was something more libre?
    Such as GNU FDL or public domain?

    In the spirit of Linux and open source!

    There are 5 or 6 licenses to choose from, but we need a default license, so we had to pick one. Of course we could have discussed which one should be the default license, but discussions are time-consuming, and we wanted to get the site up and running. ;) So we used Drupal's default license. :)

    Well, I suggest change the default license to a more libre license to encourage the spreading and distribution of information and knowledge.

    I propose it to be changed to "Public Domain". Or at least "GNU FDL".
