thanks for that detailed breakdown Ivan, but it seems as though you think that the CPOL was drawn up on the back of a cigarette packet by one of the hamsters and wasn't, instead, drawn up with the full collaboration of the Code Project lawyers. There's a reason that people don't want to use GPL (or LGPL), and CPOL fits them perfectly - it goes nicely hand in hand with the central tenet of the site, for writing articles.

The real reason the take up of CPOL isn't huge is because it's a relatively new license, and it is aimed at this site, not at the OS community at large. And you also miss out on the fact that the phrasing of a license is based on what stands up in law - so using the word "improper" means that the author can't just decide on a whim to change what they want their project used for; the change has to be legally justifiable.

I'm sorry to say, but I found your whole diatribe to be an insult to the professionalism of the Code Project team. They have put a system in place where the user can choose to use ANY of the available licenses (we aren't forced to use CPOL), but most people here seem to find CPOL to be the least restrictive license that is compatible with their aim of sharing knowledge.
