Very interesting. Some of the extreme cases they considered made me
think that licenses like the GPL and MPL which have "forcing functions"
(as the article calls them)--wherein the user is obligated to _do_
certain things--are completely untenable.
Only licenses which require that the user "not do" certain things seem
viable in the long run.
