PETA Creates New Animal-Friendly Software License

Anders writes “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the largest animal rights organization in the world, endorse a new FLOSS license. From the article: ‘The Harm-Less Permissive License (HPL) is a permissive, non copyleft, software license. It is based on the FreeBSD license but with one additional restriction; the “harm-less” clause. It prevents software, licensed under the HPL, to be used for harming humans or animals.’” I guess this leaves the bunny-fueled power plant in Stockholm out in the cold.
