Opinions below are my own; and, just in case, in no way reflect

For the record, I've proposed to switch to the CPL (reciprocal
share-alike contractual agreement). Even Microsoft apparently has
no problems with it.
If you don't like IBM in the role of the Agreement Steward
and/or looking for something "more liberal", you might want to
take a look at a bunch of CPL derivatives:
- Eclipse Public License (absense of defensive patent
- Lucent Public License (non-reciprocal "academic" version
of the CPL).
