When looking for the right licensing model to cover our Responder open-source tool, we struggled to find the right model. Some great resources such as https://choosealicense.com/ exist but it is not easy to navigate.
I am a technician and not a lawyer so the jargon and intricacies of licensing models are very foreign and unfathomable to me; especially when dealing with added internal requirements and unknown roads a project can take.
We ended up opting for an Apache License 2.0 because we want to get our project incubated into the CNCF Project Proposal Process and Apache seems to be the only licensing model that is accepted, so it ended up being an easy decision.
Have you ever dealt with licensing option nightmare? How do you deal with that complexity? Everybody talking about it online seems to have an expert-level strong opinion about them, how do we find the most adapted one?
And also, does the license model matter much when you decide to use open-source software or library/module?
